Listen in Sorrow #birds #poetry #loss


pencil bird

happy you tend to the garden

waking me daily with song

bringing cheer never sorrow

I find myself singing along

*

more work is there in the morrow

gather and fashion a nest

complaints never are filed

rarely do you stop for a rest

*

little one out in the wet storm

no jacket to fend off the rain

grateful for your reminder

sun always follows the pain

*

I take my pen sadly to paper

to write about someone I love

gone toward braodened horizons

taken gently to heaven above

*

spring raindrops

birds joyful refrain

tears fall freely

Today at Poet’s United the prompt is Birds.

This haibun is lovingly written for my father-in-law Robert who left us today.

    In loss
    we step onward,
    holding this missing love
    in the heart of our memories.
    A smile.

  2. What comfort we can find in nature – carrying on..repairing our nests.. i am glad she was there to sing and comfort as the tears fell.. sometimes there is a connection and understanding not complicated by to much thought and words.
