Hello Nature Lovers, Parents, and Educators,

Today, I want to share with you a prose poem I wrote about a variety of birds in nature that are arrayed in blue, my favorite color.


I search for the birds splashed with blue

who flit from limb to limb

birds in blue

come to me

show your shining colors free

Who are these birds in blue?

Let me tell you true…

boisterous jays…

blue jays

steller’s jays

scrub jays

lovely bluebirds…

eastern bluebirds

western bluebirds

mountain bluebirds

though all dressed in blue

no two of them look

or sound the same

Oh, don’t forget cute, sweet buntings…

indigo buntings

and lazuli buntings

beautiful feathered friends in blue

plant a song deep in my heart

flying garden in the sky

your color moves around me

surprises my wondering eyes

Now search for your favorite bird in blue
