Haiku My Heart–Hopeful Signs of Spring


Rockin’ Red Bird sings

his Springtime, horny, love song !

That’s Cardinal love.


I have been hearing signs of spring.

My favorite one is the beautiful red cardinal who changes his tune around this time of year, calling out in a joyous, “hey, look at me” way to the lady cardinals in the area.

I think he starts his ritual earlier than most dudes, having stayed here all winter.

All I know is that hearing his song makes me want to shake a tail feather too !

I know March 11th is early, but I am starting to feel it.

And it feels good.

Happy Friday, Beautiful Ones.

Hi Kim~ Your illustration of the male cardinal struttin' his stuff to your song is hysterical! I've been seeing him all winter while the dowdy lil woman hid down in the bushes! I've got an owl nest this year--am so hoping!
Thanks for an imaginative, fun post!

seven note chorus, trilling

And a happy weekend to you Kim, my love is a constant window gazer with regular reports on the bird community (that's the winged variety!) We have resident crows in the nearby Oak, my love noticed Mr Crow fly over with his fine twig specimen in beak, only to fly straight back again with same twig!?! Not right size, shape, colour who knows? Obviously wouldn't do for Mrs Crow!

I love this post - brought a smile to my heart. I too have been watching the cardinals and their shenanigans!

I'm glad you've been bitten by the Spring bug! I think letting go is important. It's so easy to hoard stuff and then at the end of the day, you never find anything you really want and I waste a lot of time being distracted by thinmgs I wasn't looking for in the first place!
Have a lovely weekend Kim!! xoxo

Love this Kim, look at Mr. Cardinal strutting his stuff. I have always loved the cardinals....we don't see them in my part of the world. I am a huge bird watcher would love the color flying in my back yard. have a great weekend. hugs.

Did you feel my heart sing this morning when I saw your birdies on the "a little birdie told me, Brave Girl's" site?

I'm so happy you took the leap! Such a joy to see you share your beautiful art with so many other colorful souls.

Stop on by sometime and visit.

The mating calls of birds, and other red blooded species. Something different going on here, perhaps the opposite, but that is good too. It's all learning, moving, adapting, adjusting and especially for me SEEing something that I felt was there all along. It's all good, al you said!
