So write what you feel from your heart and I'm sure they will feel all our love and support this amazing group of writers have to give. Hugs! These are Four heartfelt poems already in
To you, Andrea, and your Bird
by Ben Pickard Nov 5, 2017category : Nature, environment / nature
A little rhyme for dandelions -
to poets who have written of
a dove, a wren
The open fields that gleam with gold,
or rivers and
the stars that wink, the dewy moss -
Behold all this and drink it in
and smell the scent
let oceans, cliffs and mountainsides
And when you're spent, your glitter dulled -
the moonshine dimmed
by half -
don't let the rain put out your flame
or quell your
*For Andrea and her Bird. My thoughts and sincerest
best wishes are with you always.

Baby bird (for Robyn)
by Brenda Nov 8, 2017category : Miscellaneous / Misc. poems
I haven't really flown
in so long-
You know, that pure flight...
the trade winds keeping me
All well with myself and this life.
Alas my wings have been
Years on the streets
have left them broken and torn.
But I will soar again-
For inside this body
beats a strong heart-
A heart of a warrior...
They say it takes
to raise a child-
I know I'm not alone
in this fight.
My family, my friends,
sending so much love...
A person even I had given up on...
They all believe,
just as I do,
that I will fly again...
Birds of a feather (dedicated to Andrea)

A Raven-ous croaking;
echoes of haunted
Clack and snap
at her twigs
drooled from their
Scavengers of a
For she is a mother-
Huffin and Puffin..
they take to the sky.

Sweetheart, let me sing you a lullaby
on a night of November.
Do not fear of this loneliness,
I will always be with you - remember.
I know we are far from the lights,
but if death comes I will warn her.
Pumpkin, do not forget,
I am your lantern even in the darkest corner.
In this melancholy of the Autumn,
I paint roses with tears of the moon.
Oh Moon-flower, once the spring comes;
little buds won't take much longer to bloom.
Hey Little bird, hold my hand
and try to fall in your pearly glow sleep.
You will fly once again at oceans' end; your
dreams reach the shores - nothing is to weep.
