Wandering in the open

pea ridge Arkansas battlefield


Living in the Open


naked trees against the sky

the birds have no where to hide

their nests are bared to the world

like living in a glass house

is this why they fly down south

to hide in the greenery

to love and live in secret

the birds that stayed caw away

they want you to see, no shame

I really do wonder if the leaves falling off of the trees make them realize they have less hiding places.
