Three wise birds

Three flew over the cuckoo’s nest

said they had something feather important to say

baby it doesn’t egg sense

only the wise owl wood understand

so listen cawfully they said


don’t mistake what is normal for what is right


don’t mistake what is common for what is ideal


don’t mistake love for happiness

  1. What a sweet image! Lovely soft colors and three happy bird friends. 😊🦜

    And I love your wordy birds thoughts! 😊 Clever and insightful. They make me want to go out on a lark and crow right for all the flock to hear. 😊❤️🦜

    1. Thanks Suzanne, I enlarged the image so that people can take a closer look. I came across the talented illustrator and her weekend market stall in Sydney last year. She’s very nice and friendly, I love her designs I wish I could buy it all. 😂

      1. It’s wonderful! You got to meet her?! That always gives an extra nice touch to art. I don’t recognize the birds but I’m sure that’s because they’re Australian. 🙃. The white section on the pink parrot type bird in the middle looks like an upside down heart. ❤️
