This is true. It happened in the summer of 2011 and it gave me something fun to write about. Enjoy!

I lay awake, rocking in a hammock.

The fountain bubbles, quiet and calming.

Here I stay, no worries or doubts.

Here I stay, no screaming or shouts.

 

The birds speak loudly, both near and far.

The low sun is overshadowed by Earth's unending horizon.

I listen to the sounds, all to be heard.

Now I see one small, lonely little bird.

 

It looks at me as I rock right here.

My movement is shortened for fear it would fly away.

I have wonder in the bird, chirping right there.

I have wonder in the bird, that seems so fare.

 

It jumps closer and closer, hesitant no doubt.

We humans after all are much to be feared.

This little bird, what should I call it by?

My little bird had taken off into the sky.
