Birdjam Morning

by Christine Breen

BIRDJAM. MORNING. Listen to the dawn chorus. To the calls, whistles, trills, cackles, coos, chattering, twittering.

Omens are everywhere. Birds are everywhere. Love is somewhere.

Love Much by DMBW

Anxious to lift a corner on the veil of the future, we, as a species, are attracted to omens AND birds. Recounted from the days of the Romans an omen tell us a bird appearing at a person’s right side indicates fortune.  A bird to the left… well, you guessed it… Not! Avoid it. At that time of year, April of the cruellest, you must cover your left ear.

It reminds me of a song: Clowns to the right of me, jokers to the left. Here I am stuck in the middle with you…  O to be!

A bird flying to you is a benediction.  Grab it before it flies away.
