Writer Welcomes Mother Nature’s Distractions

Mother Nature speaks to us in a language we can all understand.  It’s the most beautiful language in the world, because it stimulates all our senses and sends invaluable messages to help us navigate our life journey.

Let Go, Let Crow, My Website HeaderDuring my morning walk today, it felt as if I were on a Hitchcock movie set, with birds screeching and feasting on our newly harvested fields.

My monkey brain was startled into silence.

And my worries and cares took flight on the wings of blackbirds.

Speak on, Mother Nature.  This writer welcomes your distractions.

Just for fun, here are links to four blackbird poems:

Alfred Tennyson, The Blackbird.
Wallace Stevens, Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.
Seamus Heaney, St Kevin and the Blackbird.
Alexander Anderson, A Blackbird’s Nest.
