Little Red Bird connections

A couple more Little Red Bird connections from my Little Red Bird Chirps FB page.....

When I would go visit my dad back in the 70's & 80's there would always be a cardinal in his yard...singing away. never failed. When my dad passed in '88, I went to his house to see it for the last time...and there was the little red bird. I feel that this is my dad coming home...and I see that little red bird every so often and feel mi papi close by. Thx for this heart sings his little song.

Dear Little Red Bird - first, I am so sorry for your loss. But, thank you for being so generous that in the midst of your sorrow, you shared something so beautiful. My beautiful mother passed a few years ago and I miss her dearly. Before she passed she told us to look for the red birds. I really need her today and I feel like you posting this was so meant for me. There's even a line in this poem that I remember her saying when she realized she was dying. Again, thank you. I so much needed this.

The poem Mary mentions was something I posted on LRB FB page in honor of my Aunt Loretta who passed away.  It can also be found here on my blog: A Perfect Poem
