First Bird of Spring

He has arrived early
Staking his claim to a prime area of the great tree
Halfway up
Close to the trunk

Sitting through the late winter winds
He forms himself almost into a ball
Dreaming of a time soon to come
When the branches will grow limbs
When limbs flower with leaves
When this tree will be home
For his family not yet there

At the slightest hint of sunlight
He swoops downward
Finding material to build his nest
It should be attractive for potential mates
Yet functional for the feeding and training of babies

His nest will be the envy of all others
It will be sturdy
Strong Springtime winds
Shall not move it from its foundation
Early summer rains will not soak it

He is first on the block
First to know where earthworms live
First to know how high cats can jump
First to give squirrels a taste of his sharp beak
He is building
Protecting his home
She will be pleased

There's this thing that you do when you write...you become one with nature and or nature becomes one with you. You force others who read you to consider the background and the lighting in this place we claim as our world. Know that on this day as I read you I stopped to contemplate the natural beauty of spring :)

There are so many lessons in nature. Springtime, the Creator's blueprint for new beginnings...new life, new love...

I can imagine this wonderful scene, as seen by your own eyes, BE. And I believe she will be pleased, no doubt, because of his diligence and care...but most of all, because he's waiting there.

Thank you.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
