Cardinalis Cardinalis

It was not the robe flowing beanied kind; nor the ball batting St. Louis slugging variety. I saw the shrill- whistling flying mr. proud to be a bird red male looking for a palomino-ed colored female kind of cardinal come a calling not for me, the earth-bound tin-eared feather-free wingless woman martian-looking through a pair of Zeiss.

    Kathy, I had to laugh with this one... I started it with a laugh and ended with another... and in between was just beautiful... Love, Terry

    Hullo, Kathryn: I have been terrible with responding to comments....or even simply leaving comments of any kind. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement on my poems. Btw - you left some good insight and humour on my recent blogs :D -- This is quite the quirky poem(in a good way). I enjoyed your word usage....can't remember the last time I saw the word: palomino, in a poem? I love Cardinals.

    I can hear them calling early each morning. They have a distinctive "cheer cheer" sound. Good way to write about our winged friends.
