Row after row
It comes and goes
this way and that way
Instinctively I collect materials
A masterpiece takes planning
and much thought
With my inherent skills
I am a dream weaver
The fruits of my labor
begin to take shape
A hanging garden home
Complete and ready
for its open house
I am an architect
I am an artist
I am a weaver
I am a weaverbird

Kim from Writing in North Norfolk blog is hosting D'Verse tonight and has
prompted us to write about animal abodes. I have always been fascinated with
the Weaver Bird and his undeniable talent. I hope you enjoy the poem and the video.
No one else said the poem looks like a nest! I said it.
Thank you Melissa! ☺️💕
Thank you Christine! Really loved the persistence, following those dreams… What beautiful constructions, both poem and love-nests…
Thank you Kathy. So kind ☺️❤️
What a skilled builder it is.. love the connection to dreams.
Thank you Bjorn. Yes he was building his dream home. ☺️💕
Splendid poem. I love the second stanza the most. ❤️
Thanks Jay. I really appreciate it ☺️❤️
I’ve heard of the weaver but have never seen one or its beautiful nest, Christine. I love the way you describe the way it weaves, similar to the way humans weave and knit – that is where humans got the idea from, I think. I especially like the way you wove the dream weaver into your poem.
Thanks Kim. This little bird trying over and over to get it started and then eventually he’s made a home to attract his mate. It is so sweet ☺️💕
Absolutely fascinating Christine! Thznk you for introducing me to this little feathered creator… 🙂✌🏼🏼
Thanks Rob. Such talent! ☺️💕
You’ve chosen an amazing bird for your subject Christine. Loved both the poem and the video.
Thanks Sadje. I’m so happy you enjoyed them. ☺️❤️
You’re most welcome. Loved how the young bird kept on trying again and again
Oh me too. Wasn’t that sweet? Even when it fell down ❤️☺️
Yes, teaches us not to give up at the very first obstacle
A beautiful poem. I Love the impressive nest they make.
Thanks, Dwight. It’s quite amazing. Isn’t it? ☺️💕
Yes it really is…
