Bird WalkCactus Wren Grunge Art by kenne

Once in every lifetime
a little bird may come
alone and forgotten
knocked down by the sun.
Every man may choose
to turn and walk away
or take the bird into his hand
and bid him stay.

bird songs

a feathered message
for us today..
a hidden songbird capacity
for learning then forming
a song out there..

in our parallel plane
a gifted capacity to speak
but first a language
to learn
with toil and sweat..

the songbird and we
it now seems
at once are
creator and creation
a mutual stimulation..
becoming our song…

We are part of the universe,
we have the essence of the earth in our bones,
oceans in our blood and stars in our mind’s
desire to reach out and be more.

During our recent visit to Mesa Verde National Park, I watched a Park Ranger at a demo table doing something we as naturalists do at Sabino Canyon to education visitors to the canyon — couldn’t pass up taking a photo and watching the child’s reaction.
