Chorus

Chorus

At dawn
           a single bird
a single song
           not a repetitive refrain
but a complex narrative
           impenetrable to me
though clear I assume
           to its audience
perhaps a cipher
           or a shorthand
an expression
           of the beauty life
and the mysteries
           that it contains
the diversity of this
           variously voiced
universe constantly
           seeking attention
