The Blue Jay visits every morning
Ten o’clock the arrival time
cawing loud approaching my garden.
With precise skill of wing he lands
beneath the heavy sunflower head
I think Mother Nature is the sunflower
with simple beauty to enjoy
and bountiful nourishment for all
Tall she stands reaching for the sky
guiding Old Sol on his daily journey
I watch this untamed episode
thanking high above for life
Watching the faces glow in the sunflower forest
filling my soul with contentment
I wait for the Blue Jay to visit at ten o'clock.
