Bobolink song

Bobolink song

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

Soaring the sky for clues of a sign of the times...

"



Contrails of possibilities may lead to a place 
where peaceful melodies of long ago are still 
being sung by bobolinks of seasoned flights... 

Petals of bleeding hearts float in the sky as 
dreams become a carpet of butterflies with 
wings of destiny where one can contemplate... 

The stars are embedded in the atmosphere 
waiting for a reason to shine when night appears 
In the distance the Bells of Ireland ring and 
scents of heaven settle on clouds of laughter...

oh do i love your closing in Ireland ..just perfect for the romance and holding clouds ... and thank you for the Bobolink .. i had to look it up and listened to its calls .. it is so distinct i think i would recognize it easily .. a pity that they are declining in numbers :( i think your poem is strong ...in rhythm and form .. in imagery and inspiration ... contrails, seasoned flights, carpet of butterflies (Monarchs) embedded, reason to shine ..oh man just so many triggers for me ..so glad i stopped to read your poem Pat!

Wow. You are welcome....:).....................
I love your metaphor . . . gentle observations of nature meant to pose a question about the future . . . will it be positive (as symbolized in the beauty & peacefulness of nature) or not? I love your word choices in expressing vivid details in melodic terms. This is a question on all our minds, as the world seems to be teeter-tottering with great uncertainty & potential dangers.

Creation is certainly something about which to wonder. Your words celebrate this in your contemplative poem. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all 'soar the sky' in this way! Thank you for writing this.

The thought of a carpet of butterflies thrills me. Such a serene atmosphere you created with your words, Pat. Stars always have a reason to shine...I could almost hear those bells ringing and the laughter. Lovely write. LydI**
