A Cardinal is Tweeting

A cardinal is tweeting
Its morning greeting,
And I rejoice
Listening to its voice.

Sitting on a spruce,
It sings to a recluse
A song so sweet
That it's a treat.

It's making sublime
This moment of time,
And spreading cheer
To all those near.

It celebrates this day
Which comes our way,
And thanks our maker,
Our constant caretaker -

Our creator who
Remains beyond view,
Who is giving
This moment for living.

Comment Kulbir Ji,
Appreciation comes out from innocence & purity of heart.While as flattery
release from artificiality & alloyage of selfishness.Both are related to heart,
but they are quite different from one another.I have taken an appreciation
as a mission.We sing songs,bhajans,guru-bani,stotra,hymns,play records in
in front of stone-idols at temples, mosques,churches,gurudwaras and other
holy worshipping places.While as we ignore God,who lives in temple of bone
& flash,in human,in every creature.So it is my duty to present applause to the
God, who lives in every of human.This true praise will reach quickly to God,
than the idols,because all the particles are made of the same electron,proton & neutron created by God.Appreciation secretes positive harmonies in body,
while as hate is responded for negative thoughts.Aim of man is to do some
good and reach to God.The God always cares his devotees.He is everywhere.
A Hindi sentence "sabse karle pyar jag at me koi nahi paraya re." is quite right. "Pyar bante chalo,Pyar bante chalo".Yah manusya janam dobara nahi.

Comment Nice tweeting of cardinal.In India we rarely see these birds except in a zoo.
It's song is as sweet as Kulbir's voice which we can feel throughout his poems.Appropriate rhythm in all the sentences as playing in musical opera.
Nice efforts ! Good corelation of words ! Simple but heart touching poem.
You have succeeded in your aim.Thousands of thanks.God bless you.
