Shared with the Writers’ Pantry at PSU. Inspired by one of the psalms that I read this morning. 🙂
The little bird, when it chirps,
Does it speak to its Creator?
Before it carries away crumbs,
Does it thank God for what comes?
The majestic eagle, when it flies,
One higher does it recognize?
Him who gave it talons and wings,
Deserves great praise from all things.

For Linda Kruschke’s paint-chip poetry prompt, I have written this poem. I’m not sure if it counts as an idyll, but I did use a lot of imagery of nature, and it certainly counts as a paint-chip poem. 🙂
I almost forgot to post a décima for this week’s challenge (“spring” in the A rhyme line). I’ve written two of them this week, and this is the one that I think is better. 🙂
Expectantly, we wait for spring,
We await the rivers’ flowing
And sapling greenery growing,
As meadows with sparrow-song ring.
Now winter still is felt. Its sting
Admittedly not so severe
In northern places, over here
In California, still is felt.
There are distinct ices to melt:
One which most needs to go is fear.
That brings me to what I am loving today: the weather in California. Even a cold and grayish day such as today is not actually cold.
The image for MLMM’s photo challenge #353 is below, and it reminded me of a similar photo that I had taken almost a year ago while visiting an arboretum close to where I live.

Inspired by Lorraine’s poem “Be Healed,” I began this poem yesterday and finished it today. Linked with the Writers’ Pantry at PSU and with February Love Me day 7 (I skipped day 6) because it reminds me of my family’s garden, which I really enjoy.
This is for Linda G. Hill’s coloring club, with a Chaucerian stanza to go with it. Also linked to “February Love Me” because I love coloring.
An almost-late offering for Linda’s ekphrastic paint-chip poetry prompt. She provided several beautiful photos for us to choose from, and I decided to write about this one: (c) 2021 L. Kruschke
One thing that I love today:
Ducks in the park! I also really enjoy going to the park (although I got a sunburn today)
What sort of poem should I write about this?
For JusJoJan day 29, the word is “Beach.” I am linking to a post from last August, about my family’s trip to Hawaii the year before. The post includes a very nice (in my biased opinion) photo of a beach as we took a drive along the coastline.
