Beautiful Birds Of Peace


How Beautiful of birds
of the air,
seeing their awesome
wonderful flair.

So quiet it would be
without their sound
watching them as they
fly all around.

Sweet harmony do they make.
A lonesome world this would be,
for no birds making flight
these wonderful creatures I see.

Beautiful birds of nature
wonderful sounds to my ear
touching me with wonder,
so gentle with serenity
and so dear.

    Beautiful poem Jim! I'm so glad there are birds in this world b/c birds allow us to dream and they motivate us in times of need. Top marks!

    I have often thought of a bird as a metaphor for the poet. Because, at our best, our words can soar and sing as well. Lovely, Jim.

    As always,
