A Blue Jay


A blue jay's feathered back holds spots of white clouds
And soft, glistening blue.
Upon its wings is painted days of sapphires

    What a lovely, happy, private moment poem. I liked the line: Upon its wings is painted days of sapphires. Read mine – Blue Bird –

    Beautiful, vivid, varying imagery! Wonderfully done. The incredible sights and feelings that come with an innocent, enchanting blue jay. (Report) Reply

    Pretty. In spirit, it reminds me of the purpose behind a Japanese haiku - to capture a moment in time and exalt it. You've done this with your lovely poem, and I'll be reminded of your poem next time I spy a blue jay. (Report) Reply

    The character needs to remove the window, or get outside, or have someone help her/him get outside. As beautiful as the bird is, it is separated from the viewer. Obviously the bird doesn't understand why, on such a lovely day, one would be inside. (Report) Reply

    When I read this poem it was like a little girl that wasn't me was reading it to me :) it just feels so soft in depth and texture, and so deep in meaning. Great job :) (Report) Reply

    Very lovely and lively poem, and very nice writing technique. I enjoyed reading it while imagining the description of the poem, right before my eyes.

    Your visions of the Blue Jay are very colorful and vivid against the background of the rhododendron. (Report) Reply

    A delicately, sweet look at the beauties of our nature. So deserving of being poem of the day, or
    any day. Joe (Report) Reply

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
