Conversation With a Bird

Western Bluebird, Female

Here is a recent conversation with a bird.

Do you enjoy being a bird?” I asked.

“I wasn’t given a choice,” she replied.

“Do you regret that?”

“Feeling regret is a choice. And I’m too busy being a bird for thoughts like that.”

“So what do you think about?”

“I accept who I am. And then I do my best with what I have.”

“Then are you happy?”

“Being happy or unhappy is another choice.”

“So which do you choose?”



“Because each takes conscious effort.”

“Then what do you have?”


I write conversations, like this one, in my journal. It’s a powerful thinking process.

And yes, I talk to birds; I talk to flowers, and I talk to trees. In fact, I talk to anything that’s alive.

I tell birds they’re beautiful. I thank flowers for blooming. And I ask old trees for wisdom.

I even say “Hello” to lizards.

That’s because every relationship depends upon a conversation. And I’m having a conversation with Nature.

Much success,

Steve Kaye

2) The Nature Conservancy

3) The Trust for Public Land

    I, too, have conversations with nature on every walk away from people and noise. How grounding to be connected with grasses, lizards, birds and juniper trees by just being there with them, really stopping and seeing them.
