April 28 National Blog Tour: Bird Poems

—-April, as many of you know, is National Poetry Month, and Serena from Savvy Verse & Wit organized a national blog tour in celebration.  Although the month is nearly over, you can check out the schedule here  and visit all the other poets who have contributed.  Don’t miss out!
—-I’m still not quite sure how I stumbled upon the opportunity to be a part of this unique event, but I agreed to host a leg of the tour and showcase some bird poems.
—-Poetry, for me is something that should be full of life and powerful, able to lift you to new heights of wonder and give a fresh perspective on the world below:

Poems are like birds, the words fly free;
Even caged they sing a different tune:
The avid watcher knows them all by name,
While casual observer invents new.

“These books, please, to-go
Auden, Millay, Herbert, Poe–
I’m the wordcoaster!”

Reading Into It

Just think about it
Let the pages permeate
Drink deep from these wells

For the lost soul
