Every year as the ground slowly awakens to Spring, the birds emerge with their songs boasting their comeliness, inviting their potential mate with a whistle, and defending their realm with a rant . Here is an ode to these little creatures and the songs they sing to each other…
A Love Song
Following the harsh tones of winter
Comes a song or two
Delicate as fine lace
Skipping across the newly hatched foliage
“I’m right here, right here, right here” he says
“Will you, will you, will you?”
“Please please, please please, please”
The tender limbs respond to take them in
Hiding their passion from the wind

As a creative writer, Sandy offers her poetry and prose to Saturday Soul, a journey that began many years ago in her journals and first appeared on SaturdaySoul.com in 2009. "This is my outlet for poetry, prose and deep thinking on all things soulish.
I love the weekend. Saturday and Sunday are my favorite days, they bring a hope of rest and soul contemplation that in my crazy world of marketing and advertising I have little time for Monday through Friday. Saturday Soul is an extension of that feeling in blog form."
