Forget-Me-Not

Forget-me-not

I tell thee true

for all my dreams

encircle you!

My Darling Dove

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Coo, Coo

my darling dove

Come fly with me

today

to heavenly heights

of lasting

love

I plead – I ask – I pray?

We’ll rest

midst blossomed branches

 gazing into

each other’s

eyes

And without

a flutter

of a feather

we’ll soar

as blissful groom

 and

bride!

How beautiful you are, my darling!

Oh, how beautiful!

Your eyes are doves.

I was called outside by the cooing of a lover for his bride.  They were both in our ancient cherry tree.  She was hiding behind a branch – but he was pleased to pose!

Loyal Robin Nonet

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Robins teach us that loyalty rules

They aren’t the bird-brains: Nor the fools…

Some can’t hold a vow as long

Perhaps we should sing songs

and build together

our nest above

persevere

daily

Love!

Every spring and summer I watch as selflessness is displayed among the red-breasted simpletons. Impressive! I know that I need the grace of the One who sees the feathered ones fall… yet there are some relationships that are better not to continue.

Love lightens the load

foster faith with your feathers

rise above trials!

I was taking pictures of flowers in my garden when I looked up to see an always soothing sight…
