I Talk to Birds


It is true, if you were to observe me, when I go outside I would look like a kind of, half crazed old woman. I talk to everything because I have no neighbours.

I try to post something here once a week but sometimes I have to wait for something to come. My Brain fills up with silliness, well sometimes maybe we need to look on the lighter side of life.

This little poem arrived today at a quarter past three in the morning. Don’t know why it came but here it is.

I talk to Birds

I do,
I talk to animals too.
What do I say?
Sing for me bird, a happy song.
The birds all stare as I walk along.

I talk to the cows
What do I say?
Hello girls, it’s a nice day.
The cows all stare as I madly wave, please, please don’t run away.

I talk to snails, do I need a shrink?
What do I say? What do you think?
Scoot out of my garden, if you please.
The snails move by with a slow-moving ease.

I talk to my cats,
What do I say?
Does kitty need a hug, some food or a pat?
My cats understand me, they are crazy like that.

I talk to my dogs,
What do I say?
Don’t chew my washing, you cheeky young pup.
The puppy just gives me a cute little yap.

Yes, I talk to the birds and the bees I do. The flowers, mountains and the trees too. I never stop talking my Dad use to say. I even talk in my sleep and give thanks for each day. To the sun and the moon and the big blue sky. I say thank you, thank you.

I’ll talk and I’ll talk until all is still.

And greet you in the morning, I promise I will.

About Minuscule Moments

Everybody has a DREAM. Today is the first day of the rest of my writing life. Its a lonely world out there when you are learning the craft. This year, as the same as last year, I want to finish my first children's picture book. I have learn't many wonderful lessons on this journey. You are never too old to learn.

  1. What a wonderfully happy post Kath! I talk to every animal, creature, tree, plant,you name it! I think it’s fabulous. I have neighbours too and if I have time inbetween talking to everything else I might just say helo! I think they definitely see me as crazy because they think Im talking to myself. They have no idea! 😄 I love your happy picture too!

  2. Neither would I Kath! 😊

  3. I love your poetry, Kath! You make me want to start scribbling something down about the animals in my life – the cats, the birds, and the dogs I know. So fun, and lighthearted. ❤

    This is beautiful, Kath! 🙂

    Splendiforous Kath! (I don’t think that is an actual word but it should be) Beautiful and happy-making 🙂 I talk to animals too. In particular bugs (of the unwelcome variety) and nine out of ten times they listen to me and head on out of our home and back to wherever it is they came from.

  10. I talk to the animals too and the trees and the plants. Loved your poem, it was full of fun and joy.

  11. Kath, this is a delightful poem that goes perfectly with the cheery painting. I talk with critters outside too (and houseplants).

  12. I love the rhythm of your rhyme, may I say? It feeds and flows as so does so little today. As for the D. Doolittle talking, you are not alone, in my case even inanimate objects are prone. The uncooperative bread knife that won’t cut straight, the clock that is always five minutes late…I’m going to stop there: this is getting to be a habit!

  13. Shared the lovely poem with my son. =)

    Kath! What a beautiful poem… I take it as a tribute to our pets and natural surroundings…
    Do you know what?… I talk to my two cats and they do reply ⭐
    All the very best to you… In am wishing you a great sunday and week ahead, Aquileana 😀
