Three Birds

I watched them. Three little birds. Chirping and making noise in the beautiful sunshine of the day. I thought about them. I thought about the situation going on in the world right now. Carefree and unscathed, they flitted around the small bush in front of the library window. I kept watching. The sounds they made carried me away from the real world. I got lost in the beauty. I got lost in the sound. I got lost in nature. Because that’s what nature does. It was wonderful. 

If only for a few minutes.
