When the Birds Listened


There was always someone or something hovering around the chill of Old Man 


Winter. His blustery form taking the millennium by storm in the history of 


mankind. You take those blackbirds, big shiny feathered creatures who once 


listened to the Old Man speaking of Moses walk down the mountain in Sinai. Or that huge 


cold hovering around the Argonne forest when American troops held the line against the 


Germans forces. Old Man Winter had seen it all, from the first coat tails of penguins to 


the Ice Age when his influence ruled the world. For a cold son of a b***h he really knew 


how to tell a story deep in narrative, swirling with surprise layered on surprise. His 


stories were infinite. Who else, but wintery eyes, could surpass the tale of the earth 


unfolding.When a bird died he would summons all the powers of Earth to vanquish the 


bird's material body. The rebirth occurred shortly afterward. A jubilation of an old friend 


seemed appropriate. Undaunted, the bitter sweet cold of winter, birds flocked in mutual 


abundance as they traveled. Old Man Winter witnessing the events of mankind, the Earth 


unraveling and the birds listening to tales of their home.

Hi Julie!

Thanks! Soon, hopefully, they will get longer and longer. I have the Golden Box in mind representing the divine dimension of the universe. It's discovered in Central Park, NYC. It floats!
