Keep me as the apple of the eye. Hide me under the shadow of thy wings...

Psalms 17:8

This is a three picture combination I put together of a Black-Capped Chickadee who flew into our porch yesterday through an opening between the wall and the ceiling...

I thought she would look better transported outside in a natural pretty environment rather than to show her as she was in our grungy looking old porch:) . I added her to a sky picture I shot yesterday, which was streaked with feathery wispy clouds and a Canna Lily Leaf I shot last month that also had a wing like appearance..


A bird in the porch
Flapped her wings
Back and forth
Crashing into things...

There was nowhere
For her to hide
It could not compare
To freedom outside.

So small,
She fit thru a hole
Tween' the wall
And the ceiling.
She left revealing
Heart and soul.

Neath' God's eye
She does not hide
Where angels abide
In the feathered sky..

When the Chickadee
Sang her hosannas free
On the Canna's leaves
She knew she had release.

    Very creative and lovely! I sure hope you're keeping a journal of all your poetry.

    Thank you Donald...I will need to put my poetry into a journal...I compose them
    during the time it takes to upload my pictures whenever I become inspired...
    Which probably is not the best way to do it..I am very disorganized with
    my writings..
