it was just doing what it was supposed to be doing

25 Apr

the bird that woke us up at 5am
probably won’t be there
when we reach the branch.
it needs no praise.
it has sky.

    This is the second poem I have read this morning about a 5am wake-up call from a bird. Something’s going down and I didn’t get the memo.

    Really like those closing lines.

    And morning bird song is great. Even more so when my dog feels like joining in.

      i can never tell if a bird is stuck in monologue,
      but a dog always seems to be saying something to a bird.
      it seems fair; one has bite, the other wings to escape.
