We should all be so focused on the brighter side of life.
I didn't know they get to live so long! This was wonderful. You seem to have an extra "three" in there.
Oh, I love this! Keep singing.
The Beatles 'sang' it best ... 'you were only waiting for this moment to be free' .........
...and so should we.
Yeah, I'm surprised by their life span myself.
Their life span is longer than flies. I'm sure that's why their singing.
Strong, enduring blackbirds,
keep singing, you'll carry us
from now to then.
In the blinding sunlight
its blackness staring on the stone slab
over the iron gate, and behind
a branch in bloom. As in front of the Kaaba
you behold the inner white heart,
the grip of the spotless iris of the start
and the red beak,
the unshielded first impact
with the sky of things.
A belligerent lot, blackbirds. I see them fighting and chasing each other in the garden.
But their lyrical song makes up for all the aggression.
Do they really care
that their place on the hit parade
will be so short-lived?
I had no idea how long a blackbird lived for. Nice to learn something new :o)
Understandably your article helped me truly much in my college assignment. Hats incorrect to you post, wish look progressive in behalf of more related articles in a jiffy as its one of my pick topic to read.
Thanks for pointing that out. - A crude attempt on my part to double their life expectancy!
I only sing to myself - not a nice experience for others!
They did indeed.
I was, when I came across it. It's actually given as 2 to 3 years. I'm ever the optimist.
Or it's longer han flies because they sing.
Enjoyed the poem. Thanks.
It's the artistic temperament, you know.
Not once they've got their platinums, I don't suppose they do.
Welcome to the blog. Good to have you commenting.
I'd just learnt it also - just passing it on.
Thanks - and hope your use of it brings success.
I love this as well. It's very "Zen".
