Open to everything

My husband brought home tulips for Easter; I've been enjoying watching them open their sweet faces to the spring sun.  Makes me think of the opening verse of that wonderful song by the Wailin' Jennys, Bird Song:

I hear a bird chirping up in the sky,
I'd like to be free like that, spread my wings so high.
I see the river flowing, water running by,
I'd like to be that river, see what I might find.
I feel the wind a-blowing, slowly changing time,
I'd like to be that wind, I'd swirl and shape the sky.
I smell the flowers blooming, opening for spring,
I'd like to be those flowers, open to everything.

You can watch and hear them sing this here:
