Parting Thoughts

So fellow travelers, one song bird is packed and ready for the next leg of her journey.

The image brought waves of emotion. As I sat on the porch in the morning sun  to be with the feelings, a bluebird sang out bright and clear.  These words floated up on the tears

Sunrise comes

Bluebird sings 

New horizons call

Heartstrings stretch

Weave a bridge 

Reaching coast to coast

Love abides

Boundless strong

Paving journey’s way

Parting moments are so bittersweet yet holding tight beyond the moment would cage the beautiful souls I’ve raised to fly free.

Besides, hugs will always be waiting wherever we call home.

Walk gently on the path my friends and may adventure find you ready.

  1. Fledging is hard on the parents and not so easy on the fledgling either… All growing pains pass and are replaced with increased wisdom. Glad you are able to see all that in a bluebird song (and poem)!
