Blog 5: “Bird song is your resonating touch” Start a poem with this as your first line.

Bird song is your resonating touch

where all the senses are heightened beyond explanation

let it be heard as it needs to be heard

and evoke what it needs to evoke

for the bird knows all and will guide one well

 

Take with you what the bird will give,

For its sound, listen.

For its touch, feel.

For its vision, see.

For its scent, smell.

And let its song of senses sing you into an everlasting melody of truth.

For the bird knows all and will guide you well.

 

Sit, listen, resonate.

    Wow Sarah! This is a truly amazing poem you have created. I think you have captured the essence of that first line perfectly and each line fits in so well. If Francis Webb was still around I have a feeling he would enjoy this poem too. One thing I can suggest that would have enhanced my sense of emotion would have been an inclusion of an image, however the poem as a whole was a very wonderful read. Keep up the great work! 🙂

    Hi Sarah,
    I really enjoyed reading your poem for this blog entry. You have beautifully conveyed the power of nature, in this case through the bird as a guiding and meditative force on the individual. The ideas in your poem closely resonate with those conveyed by Francis Webb himself as he sought out nature to provide him with a spiritual healing power. To enhance your writing, I would include maybe some greater use of imagery of the bird and its interaction with the rest of the natural world and upon the human spirit. Nevertheless, excellent writing! Sibel x
