Q: How can we write our story in hindi fonts

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Behold the birds of the air: for they sow not, nor do they reap. nor gather into barns: yet your heavenly Father feedeth them: Are ye not much better than they? . Matthew 6: 26

A bird of the air

Sits to rejoice

When she hears

The prayer

of God's voice.

Her Cathedral

And Churches

Are found in skies

when she flies

Or simply where

She perches.

This little Downy Woodpecker sat so

quietly in reverence today that I got inspired

to write the poetry after

I shot its picture.

    The bird actually has a trusting but curious expression. Your poem goes with it perfectly. Very nice work, Andrea. Very inspired.

    As a believer, I find the verse and your poem powerful and inspiring... they ring true in perfect harmony and fit the image especially well. As for the downy, he's downright adorable and that **** of the head just wins my heart!

    Thank you all so much for your kind words. Shortly before I shot this photo a breeze blew the petals of the morning glories that we have set up on a trellis around our feeder. The Downy Woodpecker stopped what she was doing as though listening to the voice of God and she sat like this for about 5 minutes in reverence.
    I composed my poetry as my picture was uploading to JPG....Love these little angelic birds!

    I have always believed that their singing is pure praise for the Creator. This shot - and your accompanying poem - are beautiful.
