Poetry Friday: A Gift of Birds

IMG_1077

Thank you, Tabatha for hosting Poetry Friday at Tabatha Yeatts: The Opposite of Indifference.

And thanks to Tabatha, who is the best at organizing poem swaps in the summer and late November-December.

Last week we had our first snow day of the year.  And in the mail that day, one of my very favorite birds arrived from Brenda of Friendly Fairy Tales.  It’s the cardinal which doesn’t reside in the Pacific Northwest and which I have seen twice in my life.

I especially love the “feasting on seed, daring the ground, darting up in need.”  That reminds me of the Oregon Juncos that hop around the deck looking for crumbs of the suet block.

And Brenda’s generosity didn’t stop there, I also received other goodies among which was this lovely embroidered ornament from Buffalo Stitch and a journal from them…I have been drooling over at their website. Well, it’s going to move to my writing room after the tree comes down.  Thank you so much, Brenda!

This is the last call to sign up for the New Year Poetry Postcard Exchange.  I will be organizing recipient lists by Wednesday, December 21 and emailing the address to people.

Happy Friday.

Happy Poetry,
