Heaven is a shy bird.


Indigo Bunting (Passerina cyanea)

Heaven is a shy bird.

If you march out and demand a song
you will hear nothing.

But sit still for a long time,
again and again, and let your waiting
spread a safe, green meadow of silence,

and because you have waited—
not for your own sake but for her—
she will sing.

Steve Garnaas-Holmes 4.30.12
