Magpies

Busy thoughts tumbling

Tastebuds blind to the coffee sluice

Staring into the Abyss

Mind taking notes

All of this insanity

Head bound intensity

Sliced through

By the sound of birdsong

Warbling away

Two magpies in the shade

A sprinkler

Is it dramatic to say

They saved me

From another gone by day

Awareness and Grace

In black and white suits

Not a care in the world

I’ve lost mine too

This life

Too precious

Too wonderful

To leave to some thoughts

And the ever passing mood

Returning to the moment,

The breeze,

And a soulful Magpie tune
