God gave the bird both wings to fly
and branches on which to perch.
The bird, with equal measure of care,
decides when it is best to fly and
when it is better to perch.
May we show similar awareness
with the spiritual wings bestowed
Sometimes it may be best to “fly about” sprouting your spiritual awareness and thoughts. Other times, things may be better served by taking a perch and simply observing the flight of others.
