my bluebird of happiness

sits on a shelf

in plain sight

where i can see him

he gets a little dusty


i forget to admire

the sky

that lives in his heart

but then

the sun will shine

right through him

and i remember.

    “i forget to admire the sky that lives in his heart” – fabulous!

    I have three little, glass bluebirds that sit on my bookshelf, one for each of my children.

    Lovely. You always brighten my day. I’ll think of your bluebird when I look at Spring’s blue sky today.

    I have a small blue crackled glass vase that sits next me in the office on the window sill. It’s just about the same blue as your bird and I never tire of looking at it. There’s something about that color.

    Love it. I have a stained glass piece that my sister helped me create during a visit home one year. I have it hanging in my studio window and love it when the light catches it. Always makes me think of her.
