Busy Birds, 7X12 soft pastel on card

I step outside into the fresh morning air;

a swirl of eager chatter encircles me.

I lift my eyes to the busy scene:

birds playing a game of musical chairs

amongst the bare branches of the tall trees.

All weight is lifted into the cool gray sky,

agendas fade and I pause upon the stair.

I breathe in life.

I feel a small and glorious part

of the nature of things.

neighborhood chatter

  1. Love these birds! I have my original ML Ingram pastels of the birds you did for me a few Christmases ago hanging in my downstairs guest bathroom. I treasure them so much!

    • Thanks Carl! I’m glad you like your birds 🙂 You deserve “prizes” for all you’ve done for me, and for being such a dear friend!
