Birds continues

Birds don’t hope
they continue in their search for food
they return wherever they see it
and feed as their stomachs demand.

Birds continue to be and to sing
and they look at people quizically
not even wondering at their tears
but happy to sing and represent
the hope the poet constructs.

  1. Lovely, lovely poem and a gorgeous accompanying photograph. You words are always great but there is something extra in them now. Can it be true that ones personal creative ability if heightened after they have been struck first-hand by tragedy.
