listening

two-birds-on-a-stp-sign

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!
