A Time of Magic—Monday, September 18, 2017

In the Glittering sunlight

High in the air

On a crisp, bright, warm September morning

The little Barn Swallows gathered in dense clusters in the sky, then

they filled the electric lines above the canal.

All early morning they came, swooping in, resting until they rose all as one, shimmering and glittering, into the autumn sky; dipping and rising in a choreographed dance taking them away from us.

Leaving the air around our yard empty of sound.


From my world to your heart.

  2. Our skies are currently filled with skeins of magpie geese, honking their way to their Wet season breeding grounds here in the north. Not that it’s very wet yet, we’ve had no rain at all for months, but it’s that time of year, and the north is where they come!
