Capturing The Butcher Bird

through the gateway

sunlight dapples the undergrowth

beckoning the hesitant viewer

 

a small black and white dinosaur

darts beak first into the water

wings flapping in avian joy

 

the watcher through the camera

captures the light refracted

from splattered droplets on ginger plants

As The Crow Flies East

as the crow flies east

Photo: As the crow flies east   by Daniella

 

My mind

Drifts on summer currents

Following the crow

As he flies east

Away from the desert heat

Towards the ocean

 

The crow soars

A tidal surge of black

Against the lowering

Grey filled sky

 

A raucous caw

As he escapes

The wandering eye

A flash

Invasion of his morn

Camera drawn

Fire Bright Before Compost

008

…she photographs the fireball…..

……as it erupts into ….

a searing blaze of scarlet beauty….

…..all the while aware….

…………. from now on…..

….it will slowly rot…..

…..dismantle it’s own glory…

..feed component parts to another….

….she is capturing….

………..a dying star……

…glowing red……

……….before compost …….
