They arrive in time each morning
Not a trace of laziness or boredom
as they forage for food, meet up with friends…
Against the blue-green foliage, their
and shrill calls entice passersby.
Unmindful of the morning walkers,
they perch on the large oaks
feast on the acorns, take flight
whenever they desire –
Watching them in the early hours
is therapeutic and inspiring.
Mood elevating, for they seem to convey –
“Follow your own feelings and intuition!”
Summer is at its scorching best.
The heat of the last few weeks
has kept them away, I wonder where they are!
Come back, dear Blue Jay!! Come back, here!!
