You would think I’d be tired

of this monotony

Everyday flitting

from tree to tree

from fence to feeder

from seed to seed

Singing in unison

Singing alone

Repeating the melody of one perfect song


Truth is that each moment

since I first left the nest

I’ve sung praise for the seasons

praise for the sky

praise for these wings that allow me to fly

high above rooftops

and treetops and rain

trilling thank you in gratitude

for my bird’s eye view of life
