Spotted Towhee stole my heart

Spotted Towhee stole my heart

A Poem by Patricia Wedel

Walking along a Trail in California 

where sagebrush creates a hush and 

winds blow around on hallowed ground... 

I saw a Spotted Towhee on a Cactus flower 

showing his feathers of grey and orange  

He was reciting poetry with greatest of ease... 

He seemed to know a womans heart like a 

Rose knows when to bloom in petals soft 

where dewdrops lie in tender grass... 

and both embrace the beginning of Love.

Featured Review

This is HANDS DOWN your best bird poem EVER (and you've got tons of great ones!) I don't think you can top a PERFECT poem like this (I've described a poem as "perfect" only 3 or 4 times), but I know you'll try (not becuz you're clever & talented, but becuz you're cantankerous) heh! heh! heh! This is unbelievable becuz of how my mind was riding parallel rails between the idea of thinking myself an actual bird & how that would feel with the other guy flirting it up . . . and then I was also imagining your poem as a human and hearing the bird, wanting to believe it's flirting with me! After a while, I couldn't tell where I left off & the bird began! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you Kimmie... Birds are amazing...
truly, Pat
Ha:) I loved this! That clever bird, does he give poetry lessons? the juxtaposition of the bird sings to you and the bird as muse is fantastic or is it the muse is you to the bird? no matter the feel of this is just lovely I have to say this is one of your best I thinks yes yes

Your poems are as beautiful as any photo of nature. The image is clear and one that can make the reader contemplate the allure and artistry of nature's essence.

Beautifully done.
