There used to be a tree outside my window. Until one day, while I was away, someone came and cut it down.
Now, when I looked out my window, all I could see was the hole where it had stood. I pulled the curtains and stopped visiting that room.
Then one day I heard a bird singing outside the blinded windows. I shut my ears and frowned about the “fucking noisy birds”.
But he just kept going.
Eventually I went to see what he was singing about. I pulled back the curtains and there he was on the sill.
His song abruptly stopped. After a second, with a buzz from his wings, he flew off – into the most magnificent view.
