 The Treetops - Victoria, BC
Gillian Cornwall, c. 2011

two birds top the pines
alight on the day

they sway

where to from here?
they chirp, they cheer

the world bends an ear
awaiting a hint
in the event
that they know 
a damn thing

when they sing

they swing, splay, stay

fly away

this thing
this life
it's enough

it's just fine
not to know
it's okay
it's okay

a breath
a breeze
this heart
this mind
this bird
this day
