Symphony of Bird Songs

Symphony of birds songs, four-part harmony,
greens on greens on greens, ivy clinging
and gray skies beyond. Holy wildness,
a clear path, roots in the way and poison
oak underfoot. Bridge over stream,
overgrowth, treacherous trail but nature
calls me to return. Honeysuckle and berries,
gifts for me. Stillness, bird sounds, and beauty
shines through if you persevere.
