Repeat – PianoTweet no. 525

There’s a blackbird
very close to my window.
Every morning, afternoon and evening
he’s there in his tree and talks and sings.
Until he finally goes to sleep.

He has a message: constantly, repeatedly, relentlessly.
Maybe he’s eager about his territory.
Or he’s protecting his house every second.
Or maybe he can’t find a sweet partner to share his life with.

He keeps singing and talking all day long,
repeating his message on and on.
I can’t understand what he means, what he wants.

Here’s a lesson in it for me.

Like the blackbird,
so many humans are calling and singing and repeating their messages.
And often we can’t understand it.

The only thing we can do is to listen,
repeatedly, constantly, relentlessly
and with a lot of Patience.
