Thoughts From the Bluebirds Before a Storm: Day 22 #SOL18

Today is day 22 of the month long writing challenge sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.

Thoughts From the Bluebirds Before a Storm

Bluebird, bluebird, through my window.
Bluebird, bluebird, through my window.
Bluebird, bluebird, through my window.
Oh, Johnny, I am tired.

I arrived home yesterday to see a flock of bluebirds at the feeder.  I began singing this song and chuckled at the last line – Oh Johnny, I am tired.  I couldn’t help but think of how tired I am – tired of the thought of another snowstorm.

I began to wonder if the bluebirds were feeling the same way too?

My thoughts of bluebirds conversing before a snowstorm


Oh boy – did you hear another nor’easter is brewing?  Better prepare!


Seriously?  That’s four storms less than a month!  I heard they are calling this one a four’easter!


Mother Nature must be mad at someone!  I wonder who?


Hey – does it really matter – get eating because soon the ground will be covered with over 10 inches of that cold white stuff.  Hurry, hurry!


Well I am already shivering.  Thankfully someone filled their suet feeders!


That wind sure is cold – especially over the lake!  Eat up,  quick, quick!


Hey – save some for me please!


Don’t worry Martha!  There is plenty for us all.  We just need to be speedy.  The storm will be bearing down soon!


I am growing tired of eating suet and cold seed.  I wonder when we will get to eat a fresh, warm worm again.


I don’t know – but I guess we all need to have a little more patience this spring!

  1. What an awesome idea for a slice! Love how you personified the birds and their conversations. I think this would be an amazing writing prompt for students! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Ha! Love this — could be a picture book. Those photos are amazing and I love how you brought the dialogue between the birds to life for us. Even the positioning of their bodies fit the words you chose. I think kids would love to do this! So creative — how did you come up with this idea? And those birds – again – how do you only live twenty minutes away from me??!!
