The Birds Don’t Give a Damn

I found this in my notebook today. Dated July 29th 2015

these days of summer feel

endless, timeless

the sun has shone

forever.

tonight, the moon shines

the cool night air

soothes my skin, burned red raw

it hasn’t rained

not a drop since we’ve been here

but the grass is green

the trees are lush

the birds don’t give a damn

they sing in the heat of high noon

the flowers bloom

and here am I

surrounded by green, dark and cool

at peace in this silence
