The Silence of Birds

I heard the roar from below, at a distance
Loud, like an elephant in the water or a boat being pulled up on shore.

Looking for the source, I saw nothing until I saw the cloud

Of small birds

A cloud of birds

Moving, turning in sync.

Silent, small birds, together make a roar.
Couldn’t we do the same?

KJ and I love it !! It evokes so many of the senses. And the essence is so right on. Hopefully, the silent rational mainstream will do it on Tuesday.

“Birds do it,
Fish do it,
Dolphins,whales and hartebeests do it.
let’s do it…

Let’s fall in Love.”
