I had watched a pair of blue birds in my front yard for weeks.
They had been making a nest.
I watched them carry sticks, and quickly go back for more.
I listened to them chirp and sing, and fly all around.
I was excited to see that new life would be coming to my yard!
My heart broke when I found him laying among my flowers,
He seemed perfect.
No bite marks, nothing.
I know one of my cats must have killed him,
but there is no visible damage.
I was taken by his beauty.
Bright blue feathers, shining iridescent in the sunlight.
Such a lovely creature!
I gathered an array of flowers from all around.
I arranged them in many ways, none seemed right, besides this.
All these flowers grow in the area they were building a nest.
I felt I had to show my love and admiration for him.
Every animal deserves respect,
in life and in death.
