This morning, our poetry has gone to the birds. Choose a bird (Laurie gets first dibs on the Cardinal!) and make it the focus of your poetic piece. Common or exotic, wild or domesticated – these poems have waited to spread their wings and soar.
How quickly this month has flown! Don’t let it head south without posting your avian verse!

WALT’S WHIPPOORWILL WARBLE:
Near the park bench along the lake,
he takes his time basking
in its reflective glow.
His avian brethren swoop
again and again, enticing;
it is nice that they are concerned.
But he has learned that to fly
high, he must go it alone.
Until he makes his way home.
