Birds traveling chants


Woodpecker nest


Birds traveling chants



A flock of oceanic birds
Have passed flying in the night
Above where I was


Like with crowded planes
Like with commuter trains at sunset
I’ve felt the air loaded with impatience


Guided perhaps
By the stars
Or the earth’s magnetic field


Their traveling chants
To keep together the pack
Told me stories


Of warmer waters and lands
Lots of good food
And nests packed with eggs


About the urge to mate
When Mother Nature mandates
And one is urged


About how little sunny days last
When you’re busy
With DNA recombination tasks



And about how insignificant
Other’s problems and lives are
When you’re building


Your very own house
With your other half
Guided by Mother Nature hands


How predictable the results are
When she commands
And you can and want


This night I’ve heard
The announce of new lives
Mixed with the birds traveling chants


While I was waiting
In the night
For inspiration to write
