April 5, 2016, Silence Chirps
So today I drove to Wolf Creek State Park, backed up to the trees, opened the hatch and sat in the glorious human silence, listening only to the birds. The only bird I saw was a female wild turkey but ironically, also the only one I didn’t hear, or so I think. And if you are wondering why I didn’t go into the woods — poison ivy. Today’s poem is the sounds of the birds. I was surprised at what a challenge it was to focus on one bird - so much constant chatter.

    P30X Day 5

    ‘Today, the most amazing thing happened. On my walk past the parking lot I saw her backing up her car, and when she opened the hatch the air was filled with bird chatter! She must have been an artist, and a great one too. Focusing on standing still became a challenge after that! If only I would have known the lyrics I would have sang along. In all my excitement I forgot to thank her, but I think she saw me dancing. I haven’t been so excited in a long time, it was wild!’
    From: Miss Turkey’s Diary.

    ‘Of all bird trappers, the bird chatter trapper seems to be the most cunning. The most dangewrous therefowre she can bee’.
    From: Readings from Aerropus the Owl.

    ‘Of all her poems, Silence Chirps seems to take me there with her for a moment in my mind the most. The most challenging therefore this poem is to focus on bird chatter’.
    From: Tao Te Chee Tah

    I can imagine that when you drove up there all by yourself, you probably could rest your head, think your thoughts. And so maybe you had to come out there to be at peace, to have time for thinking creative thoughts. A flight from daily life, towards a remote area in which you can pitch your tent. Away from everybody and all the distractions and business of daily life. You get a peaceful feeling and can see things differently. It was a very good idea to do that. I hope for you that you will be able to do that again whenever there comes another need for it.

    ‘Suite 1’ by RJD2 goes well with your poem:
