As I was walking down this road, where a cat I adore lives, I noticed this woman standing on the pavement.
"Can you hear that?" she said to me.
"What?" I said.
"The bird singing. Just listen! I think it's calling out to its mate."
"Yes, I can here it," I smiled. "Wow, it's so beautiful and sweet!"
"I wonder where it's coming from?" the woman said.
My attention was drawn to a tree behind a row of houses across the road.
"Maybe, it's coming from that tree," I said.
"Look, on that roof there's a bird sitting on a TV aerial," she said. "I think it's him singing."
The bird instantly took off. As it was flying towards another roof we could hear it singing and it sounded even louder and more beautiful.
"Aww, it's as it's saying, 'see, it's me singing!'" I said.
"Thank you for being here to share the joy with me," the woman smiled.
"Thank you for bringing the bird's song to my attention," I said. "I was so in my head at the time, I don't think I would have noticed."
"Thank you for sharing your beautiful smile," the woman said.
"My pleasure. Have a lovely evening!"
For the rest of my journey home I was very aware of birds singing but I have to say they were nowhere as sweet as our friend up on the roof.
Thank you, Love, for always being there to show me the infinite beauty around me.
