Starting its journey from Beyond Eternity,
Lighting up the stars, the moon and the Sun,
Traveling through many a Light Year,
Let Thy Light finally meet my eyes,
And enter my soul …..
by Justine Mara Andersen
Why, red cardinal, do you stare silently from the tangles
Of dirt and roots that tell of how the mighty fall?
Are you silenced by what I have seen this morning,
Or is silence the only song that speaks of all we know?
by Peter Venable
within my screen-in back porch—
a bright-billed Cardinal fed
her chirping and chirping juvenile chick,
who zoomed after her into a spruce.
