Some birds only mimic what they hear
Dropping sounds and syllables inside my ears
Alliteration without configuration
Seeds may sprout despair
My questions and your answers
bring only stares
Cause you don’t know the language that I speak
Some birds only mimic what they hear


dverse is asking we bring some inspiration to one of 6 paintings of Artist Jacquline Hurlbert.




About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

  4. Sometimes their songs lack a meaning for us… but I wouldn’t blame them, we have to learn their language I think.

    There’s a big difference between hearing someone and listening to what they have to say.

    Good point that one can’t expect to get answers from those crows.

    I specially like this line: Alliteration without configuration. Those misunderstandings can spring from not listening at all.
