against all odds,and possibilities

a bird will sing outside your window
you do not feed it,nor particularly admire
its scruffy feathers or scavenging dustcoat
You see a beggar bird-sparrow,pigeon,bluejay,grackle
Forget the sheen of song and seek a swallow
Life is a sandwich shared-even crumbs count
Red cardinals as rare as red squirrels
Revolution is a song,surprised/unexpected as an Arab Spring
Anonymous Wikileaks OCCUPY attention
People sit in sunshine,listening.Volunteer birds whistle in change
as melodies and harmonies soften harsh winds
Ragas of hard days softened by the song of wings..
