Our Bird Friends

 

“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Mahatma Gandhi

2018, is officially the Year of the Bird, and this week 22-28 October is also National Bird Week here and in other countries too, so I’ve written this poem to respect and protect birds! 🙂 ❤

Our Bird Friends

 

Song birds, pretty birds, birds in flight,

Messengers, ambassadors, bringers of light,

The joy within is what you ignite.

 

They torch the embers in our souls,

As they ascend on thermals and then roll,

Adjusting to what is, within the flow,

In the moment, embracing the highs and the lows,

Reeling and soaring feeling what blows,

Lifting and making our spirits soar and grow.

 

Birds of colour, birds of light,

Your palette brings us a glorious sight,

Scarlet, orange, yellow, aqua,  gold, white,

Black, vermilion, cobalt and purple gleaming bright,

In Iris’s rainbow expression both day and night,

Arching across city and country with wings in flight.

 

Birds of chatter, birds of song and seer,

You delight and intrigue and bring us cheer,

and remind us of all we hold dear.

Your orchestral melodies, elates our hearts and our ears,

and, invites nature’s symphonies loud and clear,

Together as ONE, singing out across all spheres.

 

Whether birds are in a tree, that’s nice,

Or on the ground, sea, sky or crevice,

You remind us that you rule the ‘skies’ paradise,

and have a rightful place in our cities, forests, seas and on ice.

So let’s say, “Hip, Hip, Hooray,” thrice.

And, protect you and us before we pay the price.

 

Translators, communicators, travelers both near and far,

You bring us beauty, joy and sing upon the wind and stars,

Bird magicians and friends are what you are…

Golden Evening

Be the Golden One that you are,
in the fullness of the MOMENT,
and let life play itself out gracefully :).

Wind Dance

Relax and enjoy some solitude with my new beach music and video :).

“The sparkling waters of a summer tide
The song of the breeze as it slips and slides
The beating of wings beneath fluffy skies
When you sit still and listen the music flies”  Kara-Mia Muso

 

Forest Mountain Stream

For all whom need a little respite, from life’s difficulties and challenges, I’ve created this video and music. Relax in this beautiful forest and listen to the birds and trickling stream, and let your stress dissolve.  Blessings, Bridget 🙂 ❤

The flame robin (Petroica phoenicea).

I went for a walk in a Eucalyptus forest and met up with a beautiful Flame Robin (often called, robin redbreast) when I was on Bruny Island, Tasmania. He sang, and posed and watched me intensely -communicating with heart- before heading off to munch on some insects. It was a real treat! 🙂

 

Quiet waters

 Quiet waters restore my soul…”  Psalm 23

“And the night shall be filled with music,
      And the cares, that infest the day,
Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs,
      And as silently steal away.”
