The Dazzling Sun

Settling in the pauses between seasons,
obscure coordinates frame a songbird’s journey
past a dying, dazzling sun.

    What a looker!! Easing along at a pleasant altitude, soaring bluejay, no cares, no worries, just cruising. Gives me a sense of peace. SWEET, SWEET SURRENDER!!!

    Oooops Maybe that’s not a bluejay?! Was so dazzled by the great capture. Still, WOW!!!

  • Rick said:

    Thanks Diane. Maybe a sparrow in drag?

  • Diane said:

    lol, sparrow in drag, lol. Good one!
    Spotted a large falcon nesting on top of one of our hospital buildings on Mac and Moross!! So wishing I had my camera, love to see what you could do with this photo opt, Rick!!
