Aw My Feathered Friends

This is my humble tribute to our dear Soup member Constance La France, using some of her poem titles. This is, again, inspired by the "Title Wave" contest that was sponsored by our Soup member Richard Lamoureux last year. Thank you Richard Lamoureux for the inspiration and thank you dear Constance for the wonderful titles in pages and pages of poems you had contributed to Soup and I enjoyed writing this. I wish that I/we find time to read more of the beautiful inspiring poems of Constance, that she has contributed to Soup. (Below, the titles I have used for this tribute for Constance are in quotes. I have not capitalized the words within the titles as they were.) "In my dreamy spring garden", I often hear the "melody of dawn". "The birds call me" as they know how much I revel in listening to their songs. When I close my eyes, at times, I hear "the fluttering feather" of birds and I feel they wish to chit-chat with me. "Wandering in nature" in my dreamy garden "where memories linger" I see the "sunrise, gold and yellow": a "breathtaking" view indeed. "In meadows of sun", I see a beautiful "hummingbird" rapidly "fluttering" his translucent wings "oh! sweet hummer". As "the beauty of birds" enthrall me, in a sweet corner of a tree branch, two "birds in love" were preening each other "oh! happy spring". The fine "tapestry of nature" as seen in my enchanting garden invites all kinds of birds with bright colourful "feathers". My garden is a safe haven for birds "where the bluebirds sing". My soul is soothed by the sweet song of "nightingale". "A bird of green is singing", Aw! what a melody - "Oh, the echo of birds chirping" and the warble of "the bird vireo" bring harmony here to stay: "A gang of sparrows" are seen "flying in the sky" "oh! how heavenly" now, "I would like to fly away", along with them!

Dear Anitha, you have composed a masterpiece, simply using poem titles from our dear sweet friend, Constance La France. I agree with her. "I would like to fly away", along with them! There is something about drifting in the sky, feeling the wind beneath your wings, that is so magical. So awe inspiring and wonderful. Such a beautiful tribute. Your thoughts caress softly around me and my heart. Congratulations, Anitha, on Poem of the Day. My best to you. :) Hugs, Brandy

Congratulations on POTD, Anitha. What a wonderful tribute to a fine Poetess. The title of a poem is an invitation, and it draws the reader into the experience of poetry reading. Constance is worthy of such an effort. Your tapestry of titles is a masterpiece and well deserving of POTD. Thanks for sharing your gift of poetry with us, Bill

Thank you all so very much. Actually, it is Constance's POTD, it's her beautiful titles, that I used for this poem. Am glad that you all liked this. I have always been inspired by reading Andrea's and Constance's poems, hence got this idea of writing a tribute for both of them, using their poem titles. I will be happy if you all would find time to read the tribute poem that I wrote for Andrea too, using her awesome poem titles. Will be replying to each one of you, individually, and will be soon coming to read your inspiring poems ~ Ani
