(from back: White-Throated Sparrow and female Bluebird)
Freedom wafts into the open door of my day
(Solitary Vireo - Rockey Mountain Race)
I'd greet it with tea,
if i could remember to.
& we'd both be warmed,
from the in~side out.
(a bunch of kooky cats)
(Slate Colored Junco)
(I had to save the male Bluebird for happy)
& oh so delight~fully engorged with YES!
While the birds of the dead wait
(do you see them? 3 dark spots)
to carry off
You can hide under a blanket
or in shelters made by an October snow,
But the fact is that we cannot wait until we're almost dead
to realize the worth and value of right now
if we dare to make something important from our living.
We must use it up!
WASTE IT if we have to!
& Do Something!
and if you really don't know what to do,
well then LOOK,
in every hole you can find.
(Common Flicker - Yellow Shafted race)
Make serious use of every thing you see today,
even if you have only one eye to see it all with.
The view will change,
even if you really, really love it.
If you need something to count on,
count on that.
and when you're done with all that,
take a nap,
on the floor by the heater,
on the bed,
if you don't sleep,
you can't dream,
if you can't dream
you won't be able to make s##t.
just don't forget the happy part.
ps: if you need something dreamy to listen to, try "Jaden Maiden" by Andreas Vollenweider
