Painting by: Jeanette Cooper
As a child I wondered why people enjoyed birdwatching. Now, I know why. I spent an hour today observing their cheerful play outside my kitchen window.


The Nature of Things

I looked out my kitchen window
At a marvelous sight I did see
Dozens of busy orange breasted birds
Playing wing tag up high in the tree.

Darting cheerfully from limb to limb
Flying and fluttering happily all around
Cavorting and frolicking with each other
High above the leaf cluttered ground.

Free, beautiful, and graciously dainty
Sailing on the fresh breeze to and fro
Pecking blossoms on a lovely old tree
Nourished by spring as it begins to grow.

Now they’re in another game--racing
All flying from the green tree together
Can it be because of a darkening sky
A telltale sign of inclement weather?

Where did my feathered friends go?
I wonder if they’ll soon return
Or will they just find another happy tree
With seemingly equal absence of concern.

What do those beautiful little creatures think?
What do their little brains feel?
Oh, how wonderful it would be for me
To experience their lighthearted thrill
with the wind
across the wide-open sky
like little friends waving with their wings 

in a friendly merry

They most likely, by my observations, use that one percent of our brain capacity more intelligently then us, not only that they enhance life with natural beauty, unlike us waterbags, but like you, we are learning from them in many ways. A gentle appreciation of beauty in nature etched in ink. Blessings! Jasmin Horst
