Abide

IMG_0534 - Version 2

If you live

long enough,

you will learn

of birds.

If you live

long enough

in one place,

you will learn of

individual birds.

Then, if you have eyes for it,

you will learn

the birds

have learned

of you.

  1. we were at our favorite beach (think large rocks and cliffs, not sand and sunshine) and it is a former canning factory that everyone and time has forgotten. I stood on the edge of the cement factory floor, which is all that is left and grieved at how much things have changed on “our beach” in these eight years since we first found it – and then I realized that we have finally lived somewhere long enough to see it change. My daughter heard me and said “Yay us” – I guess it was a victory of sorts. Sadly the birds I see aren’t original enough to be known as individuals, just by their song, which I enjoy greatly. I guess we all take our abiding where we can get it, eh?
