May be

As I sit here on my porch and the wind chimes above my head ring loud with the strong wind, I can’t help but ponder.
Mind you the birds are singing too. And this one bird in particular, she just seems too happy on this bright sunny afternoon. She’s been chirping non-stop, I did try to follow her voice to find where exactly is she squatting but couldn’t… the big busy branches of the tree are too dense for my naked eyes.
With the COVID-19 lockdowns and social distancing guidelines being lifted slowly but surely everywhere around the world, I wonder what this little bird is trying to say in her chirpy melodious voice.
Is she just happy or is she tying to tell us humans something? May be she is telling us to stay indoors a tad bit longer. Maybe she is trying to tell us that without us this planet was doing just fine.
For all these years, we’ve been only taking from this planet and giving nothing in return, selfish much? Today as we sit indoors, the fact is that the sky is more blue, birds have taken up singing again while the trees are busy dancing with the wind and the animals enjoy roaming free.
May be we’ve tamed this beautiful blue planet a little too much for our convenience. May be it was never meant to be this way. Where has the wilderness gone? May be we are not wanted by other living beings. May be this tiny little outspoken bird is their messenger. May be she is not done enjoying the freedom and freshness of clean air. May be this quarantine set her free. May be she is trying to say that this planet is not ours to ruin.
Just may be.. we should think about our actions going forward.. and act upon it. May be the bird is giving us our final chance.. we must take it, for their is no other way…
