The box is singing

Fledglings are making some noise

Do the parents sleep?

Art Prescription:  Mother Nature’s tenacity is amazing. Every minute or so I see one of the chickadee parents leave the box to go grocery shopping. The box gets quiet. And as soon as one of the parents flies in, there is a lot of sweet high-note chirping going on.

Blue grey gnat catchers

A pair building their sweet nest

Made from green lichens.

Art Prescription:  Found a couple of these pairs working today at Mason Farm.

A blue bird of hope

Lives within the open heart

Ready to take flight.

Art Prescription:  My chop says, “hope,” or “rare expectation” in Chinese.

Chickadees protest

The warm early setting sun

As the chill sinks in.

Not birds entirely

In contrast with things that sing

The mind and the wind.

Art Prescription:  Sometimes the mind and the wind whip around without direction, a force not to be tamed, but acknowledged.
