Surely Blue

Mountain Bluebird

Where sky meets mountain
in tones of blue
shy songbird
cloaked impossibly in cerulean
flits to the yellow green willow

Surely Blue

 Strong but soft
rich but subdued
quietly sure
not cobalt
not royal
not baby
but
bluebird
deeply serene cerulean
blue

    This is a lovely poem Monica and how wicked
    is this Bluebird just to sit there, perched in tranquility

    I think I’m in love with a little Bluebird, all thanks to you Monica, through your lovely words, describing a little songbird, sitting there so ‘blue-fully’ alive amongst the twisted deadwood and multi-toned Willow. xPenx

    Very kind of you, Sandy. I forgot about the bluebird of happiness, but it does feel that way.

    Monica, I don’t know what I like best, the photos or the poems. I haven’t seen a mountain bluebird since I was a kid. Thank you!

    I have heard of the Blue bird in songs. EG: “There will be Blue birds over the white cliffs of Dover ” Strange actually as the Blue bird does not fly in English Sky’s. I wish they did. Amazing how a little song bird can touch the heart strings and inspire people to write great songs and poetry. To hear the Nightingale , now that also is a most beautiful gift of Nature.
    Sing for me sweet songbird and bring beauty to my ear !!!
    Peace to you my dear Monica.

      Such a lovely comment – pure poetry. I don’t believe I have heard the Nightingale – just read about his song. That would be a gift. And how is Mr. Cherno?

      • kenny2dogs says:

        Cherno is a little more perky today but still hasn’t eaten. Hopefully he shall pick up in a few days time. Everything takes time-time-and more time !!!

      Er heißt – wirklich – “Berg bluebird”. Der Berg bluebird ist völlig blau – kein Rot auf ihn, wie die westlichen bluebird. Danke für die Nachfrage und gute Wünsche für Sie, Klaus
