Magpie Tale-In the Garden of Eden

the whirligigs fly
dandelions float
up into the deep blue
the lark
mourning dove
and thrush
sing harmony
dreams born
in the early morning
warm green breezes
of leaves just awakened
from slumber
shimmy and shake
the whippoorwill
carries the day
into night
the song of the possible
glistening in a darkening sky
like a falling star lands
in the palm
a prayer
for those gone
for those near
and far
St. Francis
you know who
they are

The words you share in your profile snapshot 'About Me' perfectly describe how you approached this week's challenge. So lovely.

This is fabulous. A falling star landing in the palm - well - wow!

Birds add such beautiful notes to my ears, in the air here, and in your poem.
