What could be more delicious than waking to the music of a songbird?
I am a visual person and process so much information with my eyes that I sometimes forget to pay attention to my other senses. But this week, as I relaxed in bed, I heard the flutters and flitters of a flock of little songbirds in the tree in our backyard. I couldn’t see what kind they were but it was lovely just listening to their busy conversations. Now each day I tune into the myriad of songs in my suburban back yard, trying to hear the different music of each kind of songbird.
I don’t ask for the meaning of the song of a bird or the rising of the sun on a misty morning. There they are, and they are beautiful.
The song and call of a House Finch:
A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
My moments of delight this week were inspired by the sweet, simple sounds of a songbird, so freely given, just waiting for me to tune into (no pun intended 😉 ).
As always, I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog.
What random moment of delight would you like to share? This challenge (or rather non-challenge) is about sharing moments of delight with each other each week (read here for more info). Please put a link back here into your post, so others may take part if they wish. If you have trouble entering your post in the linky below, just let me know the url in the comments section and I can add it for you.
Enjoy other people’s moments by visiting them and saying hi. Thank you to everyone who participated last week (here) (I hope I didn’t miss anyone.)
