“I don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness – it’s right in front of me if I’m paying attention and practicing gratitude.” Brene Brown

Magpies Notice

I watched the magpies 
who speak loudly, lyrically,
not often, when necessary,
preferring to tilt their heads
listening intently to the earth,
the clouds, choirs of frogs on
this alleluia morning when the 
damsel fly comes near. Magpies 
notice, they see how the cosmos 
moves slant in a straightened world.
