as are we

tiny birds in nicaragua

Even the tinniest of birds

in the most remote of places

on the earliest of mornings

in a distant land

with their unfamiliar chirping

remind us

at our best, when we allow ourselves to be reminded

that the world is enormous

and deep

and complicated

and is still in its adolescence

as are we

as are we

One thought on “as are we

    I love this…especially since I am being woken up very early, in very remote places, in very distant lands, by very tiny birds, most days these days….and to think I nearly missed it because I thought Leon was another guy posting on your blog, and not the distant place you find yourself in, may you leave with the birdsong still in your heart,
    A fellow teenager 🙂
