Old Friends

 I saw this pair of Bluebirds from quite a distance away. That is why the pictures are so blurry. They stayed together, and were so sweet. And for some reason, they made me think of the Paul Simon song Old Friends. Who knows why...



Old friends
Sat on their park bench
Like bookends
A newspaper blown through the grass
Falls on the round toes
On the high shoes
Of the old friends

 

Can you imagine us
Years from today
Sharing a park bench quietly?
How terribly strange
To be seventy

Paul Simon

the sweet little love birds are adrorable. I can attest to the fact that is is terribly strange to be 77 even more strange than 70 was, and now 2 year 6 month and it will be very strange to be 80. time is flying faster than blue birds

This pair of bluebirds do go together. They look like companions. They are definitely our friends of nature. I saw a mourning dove on my lawn, and she picked something up and flew away, and kept coming back and did the same thing. I am wondering if she was using these things to build a nest? It was sweet to watch it.

The Bluebirds are so pretty, and the poem or song by Paul Simons.
