It’s A Plane, It’s A Woodpecker, It’s A Sign!

Looking For A Sign…

I woke up this morning feeling lost

Not sure what to do

Not sure where to put my energy

Swirling, swirling, thoughts swirling in my head


So I open my computer

and I hope

Hold Onto Positive Expectations

For a sign

A Signal Into God’s Now


Nothing reveals itself

No thing inspires me to DO

I sit and wait and I resist the shrivel


Then a BANG! on the window behind

A bird has flown into the glass, a woodpecker

It’s hurt, laying motionless on the grass

It’s not moving except for its beak and eyes

It looks like its talking to me

Blinking its eyes, moving its beak

City girl does not understand


I cover it to protect it from predators

Stunned or broken neck?

I am at a loss, I don’t know what to do

So I sit and I wait and I resist the shrivel

Then suddenly it wants to fly

So I release it to the trees


A woodpecker

My sign

My Signal Into God’s Now


“Great changes are happening in your life

And it is up to you to seize the moment.

You understand the power of your words

and you use them sparingly and precisely

to get your point across.”




A beautiful, sweet, stunned woodpecker

A sign
