The birds sing

The earth gently spins

and the tides ever flow

as they have done

from ancient times

to modern.


And the early

morning birds sing

their glorious songs

to celebrate

this great and

evolving story

of a far-away planet.


We wake to

these sweet

sounds that

remind us

that we are

also here

and part of all

that is and

contributing to

the changing story

of what will or might

come to be.
