Here’s the link to the fifth piece

I Go Birding
Written by Ryan Bradshaw. Inspired by Corona Dynasty Meets
Goddess Nature, a collaborative dance piece choreographed and
performed by Kari Alba and Sumeetha Geevarghese.
When I am anxious or hurting,
I go birding –
In the Forest, my stress is eased
among Trees.
On the Prairie, my worries pass
amid Grass.
Nature says This pain will not last
with Bird songs and the voice of Wind.
When I am ready to listen,
I go birding – among Trees, amid Grass.
