26 May

the porch was filled with friends and family over the long weekend

as i sit out here this morning drinking my tea

the birds are twittering away amongst themselves

they are ever so happy that the seats beneath their feeders are empty

and all the guests have gone home

truth be told

as much as I love the celebration of being with loved ones

i also love the quiet of an early morning tea with the birds







  1. How lovely. And, I agree.........there's nothing like listening to the birds in the early morning. They were talking up a storm last evening here too. Sometimes we open a window just to purposely listen to them and their songs. Enjoy your day!

  2. Oh, my, yes! I do hear you. It's always fun to get together with family and friends but the calm afterwards seems just a bit sweeter.

  3. What a pretty shot.

  4. So lovely and colorful! I can imagine you enjoying the outdoors and the quiet in this scene.

  5. Hi: I too love listening to the birds in the morning. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

  6. I agree. We live near the beach and while I am super social, my favorite time is early in the morning when the only other visitors are the seagulls.

  7. Both fellowship and solitude are so lovely and so important for us! Beautiful picture!

  8. Beautiful and I love being alone with just the birds as well. It's wonderful time for reflection! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
