Hearing the joyful songs of the birds this fresh and cool Friday morning,
I strolled outside and took a few photos of the faux birds around our yard.
(I'll post the rest of them on my Yard and Garden blog.)
As I strolled, I remembered that just a few short days ago
I was sitting on the peaceful patio at the Abbey of Gethsemani
enjoying the birds' songs and the birds themselves--
so MUCH so that I composed a simple poem and gave it a place in my journal.
"birds", I titled it...
birds on the ground
birds in the trees
In the margin of my journal (beside the poem)
I wrote "All God's Birds".
Yes, we are...
