bird songs
on a wednesday
the jungle sways
and breathes
green warm

grace speaks
through nature’s
sound and swarm
as sun shines down
and wisdom’s

while a choir
of tweets
insist on sweet-
ly singing a chorus
of pinks and golds
and blues

and they hum:
you have to learn
to tune out
the noise,
for it is only in
love’s silence
that you will find
your deepest
