considering the birdsongs by my window

*

you sing so


boldly, within earshot,


shy little birds.


what gives you such courage,


such charismatic colorful carefreeness, to


lift your voices


so?


is it because you


do not worry


yourself with what's next or


what people think?


i consider the songs you sing,


with your strange high whistles


and morning blends of unashamed goodness.


do not worry.


i am blessed by your artful joy,


and am looking, today,


for a way to sing along.
