The Secrets of Little Birds & Children

 

Early summer mornings are a good place for little birds and little children to meet. If you slow down long enough, you might get lucky enough to witness such a moment. That’s what happened this morning.

The sun was barely awake, and so were we. Early morning air filtered through the back screen door, along with a few gentle rays of rosy light. The meeting place.

The chitter-chatter began with the little bird in the Maple tree on one side of the screen, followed by the chitter-chatter of my little girl in the house on the other. If I didn’t know any better I’d say they’d done this before.

Their playful exchange went on for a several melodic minutes until they both seemed satisfied with their conversation. Then on with their day they went. But not me. I sat in my chair like a stone, eyes closed, waiting for the empty air to fill up again. Nothing. Quiet mornings are overrated.

 

I can only assume what wise and witty words the little bird shared that morning, but I do know this: there is much to learn about the world when we allow ourselves to be bothered by the sounds of little birds and little children, especially in the early morning.
