Longing

Why do the birds sound so sad?

Their cries are everywhere, and they are filled with longing. They seem to echo into a space behind the sky, as if this bright world were just a thin film over emptiness.

I think they know, like I do, that though you can taste forever here, this place isn’t it. Their longing is the longing of the road itself.
