The Song of The Robin

There’s a Robin outside my window,
singing and chirping.
It’s been there
since before dawn.

Something in me
wants to respond.
To sing and chirp
the Robin song.

Clearly that’s
daft!
My one response
is to listen.

Is that all
to offer?
Well no,
a start though.

I’d intended to write about change (impermanence) this morning, there having been a whole lot of recent weeks for myself and many I’m in contact with. Within change the bird gives a tuneful teaching as it marks out its territory. Listen! Harken! The Robin’s song is about constancy, apparently they sing all year round. Bless ’em. I’d written about Constancy Within Change in connection with the prayer plant mentioned earlier.
