SKYWATCH FRIDAY - For the Birds


Oh, give the birds a resting place
in your private silhouette.
Surrounded in peachy-pink dusk,
formidable in the sunset.
Oh, give the birds a refuge
to tuck a head under a wing.
In your long and sturdy arms
they'll awaken again to sing.

Now you know I love the birds and poetry, so this is a perfect post to me. Your poem expresses what I feel about trees. I feel the longing and the prayer in them.
