Seen :: Frost Birds


I did not have to go far today
to see a sudden burst of flight.
frost birds rise, startled,
in the dimming afternoon

    it Surely would be nice to print that onto translucent film stock, life-sized, and install it into the window of a room where a suggestion of Cool is welcome.. at least for (increasingly.. ) warmer months. I’ve photographed similar frost patterns, but you have mastered the subject, here, beautifully, I think. You found these wonderful flight shapes! I say you manifested them, since they seem uniquely suited to your interests and nature.

      Thanks for the thoughtful look, Wayne. I hesitated to post the photo because photos of frost patterns are so common but I didn’t hesitate to take the photo. In fact, I RAN for the camera when I saw these little birds. Glad you like it! You’re always a discerning and kind critic.

    This is exquisite. I really would like to frame a copy of this.
