What do the birds know?
Do they talk with God as they go?
It’s how they are able to fly from the branches
And leave their nests
Because they know there is a place where they can rest.
Because they know that He is under their wings,
Guiding them through the air with nothing underneath but
His hand as their wings expand and they take off for greater things.
