Listen to the Birds

Perhaps you woke

with a feeling of malaise

or the weariness of a sleepless 


Or maybe you just

opened your eyes to

a new day fresh

with possibility. 

Or perhaps this is a morning

much like the day before 

and the one before that

and before 


No matter which

if you take a deep breath 

if you are able to draw in

the gift of air

and if you have the pleasure

of hearing the sounds

of birds;

the chirps of the tiny;

the raucous cacophony of 

the flock;

maybe even the magical swish

of feathers in flight;

if you breathe and listen,

you will meet the deep

in yourself
