The Whipporwill
          Through the darkness
          The sound echoed back
          With the wind's melancholy chill,
          Close to the forest's edge,
          Fresh from an understanding rain
          Came nature's voice
          Of a secret love to fulfill.
          Silken folds of air
          Promised fruition of dreams
          With disciplines known only...
          To my lone whipporwill.

Some things just make me smile. "Understanding rain" and "silken folds of air" and "whippoorwills" do it every time.  ML

Whporwills must be common to the south? I've never heard one, but they must have a pretty call for folks to write about them. Just lovely verse, Richard...len

You write with such magic and grace Richard.

All your poetry is beautiful and pure perfection.

A more authentic soul I have not read.

My goodness! Strange things do happen.. I have just posted a poem about a rain bird along the same lines as yours and I am on the other half of the world from you! Amazing! I love this write and I believe that birds are so much smarter. I wish you well.

Your poem creates a moment of calm reflection for the reader. The early morning singing of birds is a nice start to the day.

At my mother's house, they have several cardinals that come to visit often. We used to sit out on the deck and listen to them sing. Thanks for the memory Richard. Terrific piece, Joe

I love the call of these birds...Mama (my grandmother) once wrote a poem about the critters of spring and summer  and the noises that they al make, and one mention she  made was how the bird always seemed to be yelling out, \"Whip Poor Will!\" LOL

Hugs to ya...and  now I want t o sit on the porch and listen to the night noises...
