What we learn from magpies

What we learn from magpies

To see the world
           in this crisp autumn light
to witness the beauty of it
           to enjoy the privileges of breath
to move as the magpies move
           without a care in the world
feeding when and where
           their lives a constant exploration
bothering none as they go
           about their business

to celebrate this
           is part of our nature
to be conscious
           of the world’s innocence
to have a voice and the words
           with which to express it
to know love and to express it too
           what more could we want ?
