A Poem for Friday - Bird Companionship

A few weeks ago, I was to meet a friend for a walk.  I steered my car into a parking place next to the blacktop path, relaxed into my seat, tired from a busy Saturday.  I heard birds singing, while I waited and soon discerned a distinct pattern.   I found a piece of paper and pencil on the passenger seat and wrote a poem.

A steady cadence

Two singing chirps,

Followed by .........

Five staccato chirps -

Brought me to God

A bird mantra,

While I sat in my car,

Waiting for a friend to arrive

For a walk.

My friend forgot, but

I came

To God.

Thank you, sweet bird,
Sitting on a branch,
Behind a leaf curtain.
