  1. Remember this from intent back May 2009 around the time of Mother Goose…nice Haiku, I Love cardinals…enjoy as well(+)

    The rose that flies*

    Walking down a street one sunny day
    Minding my own business and going my way
    Pass by a park with a pretty singing voice
    Could it be the girls or could it be the boys
    Bordered bushes a plenty rowed side by side and smell the scent
    A cardinal just went past me in the bush it went
    I had no time to say bye bye
    But I remembered the rose that day it was the rose that flies.

  2. What a perfect description! I didn’t remember this but I’m glad you posted it here for me to read. As you know, I was/am very enamored of your Mother Goose story. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love cardinals too. We always have an abundance of cardinals that come to our feeder. Makes me happy to see them. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Much love always,
    Gayle xoxo

  4. Your two bird poems are wonderful. We don’t have cardinals here, but I’ve seen them when I lived in Maryland. Such a thrill. Wish you could see that Audubon exhibit we have at the museum…I’m touring 3rd grade on Friday. They should have fun.


  5. Thanks so much, Victoria. I would love that Audubon exhibit–enjoy your time at the museum with the 3rd graders.

    Gayle xoxo

    • Just got back from my trip very late last night. So glad to be home but had a wonderful few days away. We are getting ready to have our Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday. We’ve been invited out of town and to spend overnight with my niece who is hosting Thanksgiving this year so will be gone a couple more days later this week.

      I’m happy to be able to “talk” with you again.

      Much love…


      • back to back celebrations, just like our durgapuja phase ๐Ÿ™‚
        its so fun, is not it? by the time one is finished the next one is standing at door.


      • It was a lot of fun having those back to back trips and celebrations. I really enjoyed myself.


  10. You and Dom are on the same wave length Gayle he was writing about Blue birds a couple of days ago. Send me a friend request if you like on facebook… You can find me as Stuart Steele.
    Have a happy Thanks giving and I am thankful for you as well…you make the world a little brighter.


    • I’ll look you up on Facebook, Stuart. Dom and I often seem to be on the same wavelength–he’s a close soul mate of mine. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving too–I’m very grateful for your friendship as well. You are a very positive and bright spirit.
