The birdies are all here

distraction abounds

young hatchlings test wings

screeches, the sounds

We attempt to keep up

as time rushes past

but to stay in the moment

one need not move fast

All fall back, in this tree

of summer days gone by

 the new, shared with songs

’til again, some will fly

I am placing the past

behind my back

like a soft pillow

to lean on only for comfort

Then, if the present

doesn’t get ripped open

in a frenzy, as I give way

 maybe the future will

hold me gently

in it’s innovative arms
