Trust

Morning birds
Sing their songs
Outside the window-
A quick look
Proves disappointing
Despite full feeders
No feathered
Friends in sight-
Singing continues
Hidden from view
Perhaps, it’s a
Matter of trust-
After too many
Days of visiting
Empty feeders
They stopped coming-
The consistency and
Routine required to
Maintain any sense
Of trust was broken
Nourishment once
Freely provided was
No longer available-
Only for a short time
Yet, with consequences
Hiding replaced sharing
Security turned to fear-
Forgiveness takes time
Faith renewed only as
Needs are met with
Feeders kept full
Under the shade
Of the trees
Day after day
Regaining trust-
A poignant truth
Regarding birds-
Yet, how much more
Important where
People are concerned
