The Birds Behind the Screen

There are birds trapped behind the screen.
On quiet mornings I notice them
chirping -
gossiping amongst themselves -
what is this creature
with the tired-looking eyes
who taps and taps
and disturbs
our roosting
with her dreams?

Oh, you're back. What a pleasant surprise on a cold morning. Last time I looked you were taking a break. So glad to find you again.

Super poem - it made me think of crazy little birds of inspiration behind a computer screen - you tapping to let them out, them tapping too but not necessarily bound to come to you.

Thank you, Jem! Yes, I heard them chirping there this morning so I thought they deserved a mention.
