It’s only natural to talk to the birds,
actually to talk back to them.
Like other people, we’re not so different,
even if we speak another language.
It’s probably more sane to respond with a chirp
in human parlance than to ignore our feathered friends.
And then there are the bees and butterflies, and trees of course.
I couldn’t resist conversing with them.
I simply could not resist.
And what of the unspoken connections,
sharing the same water and air,
sunlight and energy,
dreams and aspirations?
I simply could not, could not resist
because our connection is natural.
