A bird sings a song

I stand outside , and I hear a song 

a bird is singing soulful sounds into the breeze 

I cannot see , but I can hear a song 

she's like cotton wool sending waves of softness , echoing into the breeze 


the breezy bird caused a glimmer to stir within 

she made me smile 

the softness of her sound 

the beauty whistling in the breeze 

like gentle waves touching the sand beside rocks 


maybe she is singing from the roof of a house 

wandering at the surface upon which she lands 

little feet perching silently 

wishing she was on a rock by a beach , singing to the wanderful waters 

but she's on a roof singing under a cloud 

singing a tune from within 

a reflection of her internal feelings of peace , maybe 

she sings into the breeze 

causing notes to stir 

does she realise how musical she sounds ?

she plays music with the sounds stirring from within 

needing no helping hand to make a sound 


pianos and guitars cannot sing a sound , alone 

but she can simply sing her own song 

the song of herself 

the song of who she is 

and so I wander , if she can sing her own song 

then we all can sing the sound of ourselves 

some will listen 

some will like 

and some will step away 

but all we can do is be true to ourselves 

speak our soulful sounds 

just like that bird singing in the breeze
