~~~^♡^~~~

a flash of red
in verdant trees
a cardinal!
bright
within its leaves!

the telltale call
and flirt of tail
announces love
in the plain
female!

gentle nature
touches the pair
to bless my
heart

yes!

spring
is
HERE!!!

a perfect day in Tucson Arizona!
A cardinal sings-
Brixter Artan Quiel Oliveros

A cardinal sings-
Its own melody drags it down, preventing flight
A bass filled tune that echoes in a cage of bone

Every day it cries
A hot spring that reflects its color
Streaming onto the rest of the massive prison

A grey man
Older than the prison, as old as the cardinal
Asks “Why do you cry in your lonesome, tender bird?"

The cardinal sings-
Its own melody deepens its intake of air
With a bass filled tune it says: “Because I am alone."

there are four cardinal directions, N E S W, do not forget abou

You are a leader ship

how I know this?

cause I'm a leader ship too

I can see the sinuous fibre of your very being

take a look

I bet you can see it too

we are borne of the earth and the stars

borne in the wind

there are four cardinal directions, N E S W, do not forget about the intermediary

be an intermediary ~ who wants to be a cardinal?

we need our leader ships following their own true north

2D - 3D -- 4D --- 5D ---------------------------- >

following the wormholes ... the aether

following certain signs and symbols

trust in divine feminine ... .. . .. ... masculine divine in trust
trust in masculine divine ... .. . .. ... divine feminine in trust

" 'It's all this!' He wrapped his finger in his fist; the car hugged the line straight and true." ~ Kerouac

Ship builders choose their timber mindfully
Be mindful with your archetypes, Noah!

White cardinal glows,

White cardinal glows,
soaring through an overcast sky,
a white lily within the gray clouds,
a white rose in a garden of red.

Scarlet streaks still stain the
coat of white cardinal,
the red smeared like paint on the
white canvas from delicate fingers.

Solace found in winter's breath,
white cardinal's wings beat
to the sound of snowflakes
melting on tree branches.

White cardinal shines silently,
sitting on the branch; a white rose
symbolizing the purity of new souls
and the innocence of a fresh new blanket of snow.

Inspired from this image I found online: http://d24w6bsrhbeh9d.cloudfront.net/photo/a3Y7325_460s.jpg
So forth went the cardinal,
AK Neu

So forth went the cardinal,
who from her tree perch had wondered
why her colors were of the earth
and not the magnificent sunset.

Others around her had bore
the brilliant crimson, yet she’d remained
as she had always been:
dull as the branches of home.

Thus went the cardinal,
who in the limitless sky soon discovered:
the music that beckoned her forward
was eternally blind.

Pair of cardinals
perched together in the snow,
one warm, beating heart.

My sister swears that my grandma returns to earth as a cardinal.  Since I saw two today, I wonder if they were my grandparents together.
A cardinal in full regalia

A cardinal in full regalia
Splashed down like the last drop of blood
From an anaemic sky.
He preened diffidently,
Drinking from a melting boot print
Left in the snow,
Before shooting up
Like a dart
Past my window.
He made me blush.

I see Cardinals
reminding me
of the dead.

So bright & red,
they chirp beautifully,
sing a wondrous melody
above my head,
going nowhere
& I think,
perhaps,
I am better off
being a singing-bird
with vibrant plumage,
flying.

THAT'S THE CARDINAL RULE!

IF I CAN'T SEE YOU

I CAN'T TRUST YOU

THAT'S THE CARDINAL RULE!

SO TONIGHT I FIND

I'VE BEEN BLIND

I'VE BEEN TWICE THE FOOL!

You two have taken the last trust i had and torn it to shreds!
Thanks ap and cs
