Flying high...



 This his how I felt once I decided to skip 
the holiday madness


 a lightness of being
as if lifted from the fray
of insanity that accompanies obligation



free of guilt
for not 
following the norm



My spirit took flight


knowing
today I could go to the bird sanctuary
rather than 
to the mall


 hushed whispers of wings and air
 cool morning twilight
~
 aware of 
the delicate balance required
to see from another perspective



what is important


in an instant
I was transported 
to a place of 
tranquil calm
~
I am not alone 
but rather surrounded by a
powerful and profound reality of the infinite



birds don't care about the holidays
they care about fresh water
healthy food sources
a place of refuge 
to sleep, mate
raise their young
~
Their wants and needs
are simple




How is it our feathered friends 
have a more balanced perspective 
on how to celebrate the glory
of the All Mighty?
