No Cardinal Sin

Just stepped
on to the rear porch,
on the property fence
landed a couple
Of old friends
The regal red beautiful
Male cardinal
and to my surprise
His lovely and charming
mate or hen
whichever you prefer
She's perched like a queen.

Its been several weeks
since my eyes settled
upon their loveliness
he's still the perfection
Of wild life beauty
Her, She has changed
Seemed more plumed
Heavier one might say.

searched for them
I not need today
As in the past,
they saw me first
and came into my vision.

When they fly away
I will know
from which tree
their young
will make their maiden

I thanked them
Within my thoughts
Hoping the wind
Will to them deliver
My respectful thoughts
for they have blessed me
with their presence.

A bird of so many sport team mascots. Revered for its brilliant red plumage. I wonder who was named first, the bird or the Catholic diocese head. I think the bird was named after the man because I believe cardinals were only in the New World and not in Europe.

We've been blessed with a nesting pair that visits our backyard daily to check on the birdseed before it's all gone. The male must be quite young, because he is not yet completely dark red. The female seems to be more aggressive when it comes to feeding. Probably because she's the one that lays the eggs.

I've heard, I'm not sure where, that to see a Cardinal is to see a loving soul from your past...maybe a wife that passed or some other loved one as that is how they come to us in God's beauty...and you have two, with more coming...such luck is rarely found...-e-

A wonderfully personal moment described beautifully. Hope you are there to witness the maiden flight.

I need to be more observant and in tune with Nature
to see and feel as you do. Great write!

You so well blessed, William,
and so much so, you even find for yourself

Thanks for sharing!

Nature had always been enticing and.pleasant to the eyes.. Their presence seem to calm the soul..

Oh, the lovely flash of red! I have cardinals in a tall oak tree in my back yard and love when I see the male breaking the daylight with his brilliant red regalia. Fine writing!

Love ya!

We have no cardinals here but I thank you for sharing this ode to them, William. Love and peace to you,

Nicely done, William. Nature can really give us pleasure if we just take the time to look. It seems here that your guests took their own good time to look at you, for you are a part of nature also.
