A droplet of rain trickled down the window pane The sky had darkened and the light began to wane Thoughts of the day relived again in her head Shuddering she turned back towards the bed
Sleep would remedy all and she craved the escape Time to heal and repair and her life to reshape The room felt dark and oppressive Trapping her somewhere in between and just then the sun smiled through a crack in the silkscreen
She saw a bluebird on a bough Calling to her sweetly in song A white ribbon tied to it Stretching towards her, quite long Taking hold of its tether They went together across the field She and the bluebird of happiness On the way to being healed
Wonderful interpretation of Jacquline’s art. Well written Christine.
Oh thank you so much Rob. You are very kind 🙂
On the road to healing is a beautiful place to be…

Thank you so much 🙂💕
I love the concluding lines, so uplifting to make that journey to healing.
Thanks Grace 🙂 I appreciate it
Very nice use of the prompt! Birds blue and otherwise seem to have healing qualities, if we take time to observe their comings and goings
Yes agreed Dwight! Thank you 🙂
The bluebird brought healing when most needed.
Yes, I wasn’t sure how my poem was going to end and then I saw the beautiful artwork for the prompt and it came together. My bluebird! 🙂
The bluebird of happiness is crucial to the meaning of this painting, however one interprets it. Nice.
Thank you so much. 🙂
Thank you so much 🙂

I like the description of her being on the way to healing drawn by the blue bird.
Thank you Frank. It was a lovely prompt to work with.
Such a tale of redemption and healing. I know who sent the bluebird <3

This is what troubled people dream of, the silken thread leading to the way out.
Yes Jane, how true. 😢
What a wonderful thing to be saved from such darkness by a silver line to a bluebird
That’s what I thought too 🙂
