a little bird

February 24, 2010

a little bird sits across from me, curiously,
his beady little eyes look into mine, and suddenly,
I feel smaller than him.

he ruffles his feathers,
revealing an indigo blue.

he doesn’t say much, only chirps a couple times,
and it seems to take most of his effort for such a sound.

off he flew with a friend,
perhaps to explore the cheerful morning together.

don’t you love the feeling you get when you are shown something so small,
so beautiful,
and you find that everything isn’t as hard as you’re making it?

a tiny little bird isn’t so small anymore when it reminds you of the small joys in life.
it’s almost as if that little bird was sent to give you a smile,
and that, my friend, is one of the best feelings in the world.

I hope your day will be brightened by a small joy, as well.
