Birds sing at 5:30

By X. Z. Shao

Birds sing at 5:30,
one seems asking a question,
another answers,
still another with much coarse voice
produces a cacophony
at a longer interval.
Awake on bed,
I am blessed
with nature’s innocence
and its soul bathing sounds.
But, if any crazy guy
would sing at such an hour,
despite her/his angel’s voice,
hymns to gods,
I would go and knock at her/his door
and turn my face sour.
