Did you ever have one of those days of constant rain? We get them a lot in Florida, in fact they call it, “Rainy season!” On those long wet and dreary days, I often have wondered where the birds go and what they could be doing while thunder rumbles and lightening is crashing down. I hope you enjoy my little answer in verse to that question. Have a blessed day everyone, even if it is raining again!
Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by. Psalm 57:1 ESV Some days the hawk sits silently While the thunder crashes round And the sparrows flit into the barn Where the chickens huddle down The cranes stand in the rushes In her house the blue bird sleeps While the chickadees are twittering In the thickets dark and deep But eagle flies up to her nest When she hears her children cry And shelters them with wings so strong While the rain is passing by Can you and I do less than birds Who know the place to hide And fly to God our refuge strong To rest safely by His side Rainy Days by Peter Caligiuri © 2021 All rights reserved

Great poem, Pastor Pete! I enjoyed it!
Thanks Sheila. I may include this in the small collection of children’s poetry which I hope to release this Summer. Glad you enjoyed it.
I’d love to see that collection. Sounds really good!
