two birds were on the stop sign,

one was chattering away.

the other stared into space.


i wonder if one understood a chit of the chatter

or perhaps had heard it all before –

or if perhaps had already understood the message,

but the messenger would not stop!


sometimes it is so hard to heed stop signs,

even when it seems we are sitting right on top of them!
