Little Bird a poem by RestLeSsD

Oh, you, little bird,
I see you’ve come back home.
Spring is on it’s way again,
Your time to nest has come.

Time to build a place to live
To gather leaves and sticks.
A home to share with your mate
A place to raise your chicks.

Life’s cycled seasons,
These are the reasons
That you will mate and perpetuate
And life will carry on. . .

Hello, I am Rhonda aka RestLeSsD & I am a graphic & web designer. My main media is Photoshop & Dreamweaver. I create 3D art & images using Fractals from Incendia & Apophysis. I use these in my creations formed in PS. I also use Picture Window Pro and Paint Shop Pro.
I am also a poet & I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. Since being here on the Bubble I have fulfilled my goal of illustrating my poetry & writing as well as writing new works…

    What a lovely little bird – it looks like a purple finch – nice writing too :O)

  • It surely does. All I could find was house finch. They are so similar to the little sparrows but much prettier.
    Thank you Chris…
