Meeting of the Minds in Song

Meeting of the Minds in Song

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

A Nuthatch lives at Forest edge...

"
I wandered along the Forest edge... 

and discovered the song of a Nuthatch... 

It was sad with the lilt of a Nightingale...    

I wanted to bring a note of good fortune 

to this wisp of a songbird who lives 

in a crazy upside-down world... 

So I began to sing my song with great gusto  

Our voices blended  and creatures of the Forest 

came to rest on Mossy knolls... 

The Rabbits and Raccoons and Lizards too 

enjoyed the peaceful lusty tunes... 

You may be a troubadour and bring an added voice to 

a saddened world by harmonizing and bringing 

everyone together in a crazy upside down world 

of feathered feelings of well being of all breeds 

and nationalities where peace will succeed...

Your writing is so joyful! You whisper your thoughts so clearly we all get to share their comforting and often bright magic, Pat., thank you yet again. What you say about the voice of birds, of the all around.. is so very true. It's nothing less than miraculous at times and in the waiting of a lovely sound, a smile seems to grow from inside out … and its so very wonderful. Tis true about that feeling, near ecstasy in a way, if we could only share it, like a tossed stone rippling across water, who know the thrill of sharing its dance and whispered movement. You lure emotions from me at virtually every post you share with us all. THANK YOU. xx

The poem I read just before this (by Momzilla . . . nursery rhyme/political statement) was the best I've seen lately, hitting the political situation head-on with witty satire, but I prefer when a solution is presented, rather than adding to the growing roar of complaints. Your bird affinity is beautifully woven into this statement of our broken times. I love how you tell a story as a vehicle to make your "statement" . . . when I got to the point in your poem where you (narrator) broke out in song, that really tickled my fancy. Love your way of tying it all together (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

How charming... and blessings to you Craig and to all those you love. Pat
You remind us that all is alive around us, all unified in harmony and song and all want to live freely, joyfully. All these blends are for our enjoyment, for relaxation and feasting the eyes. Your poetry add minds-capes in the landscapes of the now. Pleasure as always to have read and enjoyed Patricia.
