This morning the birds woke me up
Nice chirping in a quiet Tokyo
Lovely way to regain consciousness
The birds start before the construction workers
On the lot next to my home
That gives me two hours of complete stillness
My favorite hours in Tokyo
Or anywhere for that matter
Two hours to think and reflect
There are more of those hours throughout the day
And the construction is just temporary
But I like the morning ones the best

Love, Jörgen Axelvall
