Winging- a Duo-rhyme

I feel so blessed to view the sky,
To watch God’s majestic birds fly;
     To hear them wake, begin to sing,
     Then leave their tree limbs on the wing.
     As winter season turns to spring
     Mating birds hunt for twigs and string
     To build a nest for mothering.
     Soon what joy little eggs will bring
When these new fledglings learn to fly
And leave their wing prints in the sky.

*The Duo-rhyme was created by the late Mary L. Ports

    What a delightful and winning poem this is....on this hot August day, it makes me cool and serene as if it is a springtime day, with new robin eggs ready to hatch! (Love your last line!) Congratulations, Connie!

    wow, Connie. You did a WONDERFUL job with your entry. I am so happy that yours is the one I liked so much for my second place in the contest. It's so strange. So far, my top winners I've noticed have barely been viewed by any of the members of Poetrysoup and I sure hope that more people will view the winners list now and see the amazing poems that you and the other winners wrote. Congratulations. This one reminded me so much of the new baby birds above my garage. Is that why you chose the topic?

    Thank you very much Andrea. I feel very honored. No, I wrote this before I read about your little nest above your garage. This is my first time writing a Duo-rhyme. Mary loved birds which is my reason for writing it. Mahalo, Connie
