See the Bird – Reach It![1]

Bird Sing the Sky into Place[2]

Every time a Bird Grazes a Cloud – I Write it down[3]

You Throw me to the Crows – but it turns out I Prefer them to you[4]

The Birds have taken in upon themselves to Exclaim “Extraordinary,”

And the Word has taken Root in the Air, and been Inhaled by Mankind[5]

Birds are always Flying about in the Sunshine somewhere, but they seldom Mean anything[6]

Do you Hear that Bird Warbling? That’s the Sound of your Entry into the World[7]

Migrating Birds Teach us all Life follows Divine Change[8]

Birds Fly into the Depths of our Existence[9]

We Are Birds Beak to Beak[10]
