I created this for Alpha Stamps (go there and buy yummy products). This month they have a theme "Odd Birds" and since I have soft spot for quirky ducks in my little heart I wrote a poem and made this altered art book to go along with the theme...

















And the poem....

Cherish the odd birds
With their hedgehog plumes
Who sing wild songs
In quiet little rooms

Delight in the sparrows
Overflowing with strange dreams
So filled to the brim
They are splitting at the seams

Marvel at the darlings
Who smile with crooked teeth
Whose wings are not straight
But who have the brightest cheeks

Cherish the odd birds
The irregular and quirky
For they are beams of hopeful light
When all the world seems murky
