Listening to the Birds

I wonder what the birds think 
of religion…
As they welcome in 
and celebrate 
each new morning, 
do they know 
to Whom they are singing?  
Do they sit 
in birdie committees 
and argue 
which song is right 
and which chirp is wrong? 
It’s ridiculous to think about – 
isn’t it? 
And still, 
we think ourselves 
so much more evolved 
than the birds…

Angel of the Birds is a painting by Franz Dvorak
