Some of us use only our field glasses; Some take informative, educative classes; Some go with others and watch what they do; There are multiple paths to learning how to watch birds, too. A different path may be liked by each… Including the level each wants to reach.
I woke up in the middle of the night To see a world swathed in silent white. The snow came down in a luminous cloud One little flake landed on my palm. And melted into water; no fuss, so calm.

Melting, not into liquidity But quietly into eternity.
