Cacophony rings from the trees
as amorous birds roost.
Startled, they take flight,
higher, higher,
striving to break gravity’s
adamantine bonds.
But soon Death calls,
the Decree takes wing,
and like slain Angels
they plummet
to a lonely grave
among the stones of Earth.
There are signs
for those who think.
