Watching Red Birds

Watching Red Birds (Illustration) Poetry

 

I sat and watched a red bird today

and a bee buzz around my head.

I sat and watched the wind blow,

feel its coolness against my sun-heat skin.

I listened to the trees rustle and the

chickadee sing.

 

I watched the clouds roll by

and tried to guess the shapes.

I watched a red rose open,

its petals toward the light,

and a baby squirrel snuck up to say hello.

 

I sat and watched a red bird today

flutter from tree to tree

as he chased his mate around,

chirping the whole time.

I think he knew I was there.

 

There are many things I didn't do today,

many things I should have done.

But with so much to entertain me,

I could not pull away.

So,

I sat and watched a red bird today.
