Join Julie Potiker as she leads you in this healing light meditation. She completes the meditation with her poem, "Bird World Orchestra".

Bird World Orchestra, by Julie Potiker.

Sitting in a comfy chair under the cool canopy of a black locust tree,

I’m serenaded by the Bird World Orchestra.

The acorn woodpecker appears to be hosting a happy hour and salon at 5pm.

His guests swoop in and flit out.

The Northern Mockingbird,

Yellow-rumped warbler,

and the American Robin drop in for a drink.

The tiny Bush-tit, not embarrassed by it’s name

is joined by Allen’s and Anna’s Hummingbirds.

The California Scrub Jay and the American Crow

not wanting to be outdone by the singing of the precious little House Finch screech

they are on their way.

The California Scrub Jay may be having a nervous breakdown.

It’s difficult to know.

Hopefully he will make it to the party,

have some juice,

and calm down.
