Soft and Gentle

The sun rose quietly.
Gently the morning came.
The Crows were silent.

The Moon rose quietly.
Gently she faded
into the day.

The Cardinals called softly.
One by one they came.

The Woodpeckers were still.

Only the sound of my beating heart.
Happy Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's Day, Sherry! Your birds look very happy today.

Dear Cheryl,
When the day is new and the city is still sleeping it is quiet. I love the early morning as dawn is coming on. This morning the birds were even quiet. I stayed in my robe and slippers and sipped my coffee. I stayed as quiet as I could. Once the city awakened I read my poems to the birds.
I hope you have a most relaxing day filled with light and love.

Dear Mary,
I just had to post at least one picture of the female Cardinal! I love all the birds but she has a special spot in my heart.
Happy hearts and pretty birds!
Bird songs to come,
