The Bird (Guest Post)

I hear a symphony
in the world around me
as I go through
each passing day.
From the thump of machinery
to a bird’s song,
the whisper of the wind
and the hum of tires on asphalt.
Everything in the world
makes a song
for those who listen,
A quiet tune
born of an invisible creator
unique to the world
you wander through.
Sometimes I only catch
bits and pieces
as I focus on other things.
But on rare occasions
I’m able to sit
and enjoy the magic
of the world’s music
played in a concert
just for me.
