Calming

Heard a bird singing today.
Not just the whimsical whistle. A ballad. I realized in an instant, I had not heard it for so long.
There was a soft word
on the gentle breeze
which touched my cheek.
I recognized it. A familiar
joy touched my heart,
when she whispered, I love you. Just when I needed it.
The powerful voice of God,
calming.
