birds singing in trees

feathers wherever you step like birds

want you to know they are there

for you

birds leaving feathers 

on the path

like presents

for you to say

“oh hey”

“look at that”

birds that tweet to each other

birds that chatter

and birds that sing

they fly to one another from

branch

to branch

and if you watched 

as you walked

you’d notice

little birds 

saying hello

saying 

“hey, i see you”

“hey, i’m here”

and when you don’t look up

they look at each other

and shrug

and say

“well maybe this feather will get their attention”

and it does

because birds have their ways

and they can be very playful sometimes
