Song light

Might song-birds prefer certain sounds and sun-patterns?
Do plants prefer certain songbirds gather and make song?

The sound of these trees when they blow in the wind, and the songs of those insects also make them happy.(?).

(Wingbeats of birds, distributing exhaled molecules)
Making. Gathering. Gatherings.

Might insects

(Busy as a bee)
Tending. Gathering. Gatherings.

Path-songs. Place songs. Song paths.
Places of sound, light, rhythm.
Theirs-Ours. Come-go. In-Out.

Do they name?
(their music, our music, music).

Do you hear the courting mouse’s song? He is in the garden,
at woods’ edge sharing his song – light
like a birdsong in the dark.

Walking, and looking at trees, breathing in and out, one also wonders how fast Carbon Dioxide spreads (googling, perhaps CO2 can clump). Do birds bathe leaves with this chemical species? (March 25th)

This poem was inspired in part by a painting about the motion and sound of grasshoppers, a passage from a book about birds in and out of cities and the abundance of life, a raspberry (with its green worm), an assignment to write about a painting, the Melody Composer script on Google from a couple days ago – which by the way, was seriously fun…)

It was written, when just beginning this blog, and thinking about “Into Recipes (and out to forest, edge, and field)”, and the inter-connectedness of communities of flora and fauna, and how plants and animals grow together.
