LISTEN

Overnight the world
has filled with bird song,

unaccustomed silence
whispering to itself

then suddenly emboldened,
taken by surprise.

Listen. This is the sound
of compensatory freedom,

conversation offered
to be overheard 

and marvelled at
until familiar,

an airborne language
greeting you in flight.
