The discrepancy…

I think of you and my heart stops

As it contemplates the discrepancy

Between the throbbing gripe of desolation

It feels at your loss

And the delicate exquisiteness

Of cherished memories evoked

poetry and image by Magical Normal Life


You always loved the birds

You would fill the feeders each day and they would thank you with a beautiful symphony of trills and Chirps

Your eyes shining bright as you would take my small little body into your warm maternal arms and left me up to see  the robins nest

Your soft voice in my ear reminding me to listen to the love song of the red breasted Finch

The endless amount of time you devoted to teaching me to listen to the peaceful patterns of nature

You taught me to love life

But suddenly you were gone

You said you would be riding the wings of an angel, but the angel dropped you and you fell out of the sky.

If only you had wings of your own so you could soar from heaven to earth

Yet, Because you loved me so much

I still love life

I still find peace in nature

Each day I fill the feeders and I think of you

I hope with all my heart that you are still here with me

Perhaps you are one of the birds

Or maybe you are the slight breeze that gently whispers in my ear

But wherever you are…

Please know that I will always love the birds.
