Hallucinations & Memories

She bends others to her will
with a splash of red,
leaving hallucinations and memories
of the wind’s wild side.

A Cardinal bends others to her will

    Rick, it looks like your pictures are getting more and more colorfull 🙂
    I am not always fond of the fuzzy look, but I like that you manage to make every picture have a distinctive ‘Lieder look’ 😉 and include a poem every time.
    Good work!

    Oh. Forgot to mention your pictures itself are really good too!

    Rick, all that is said above is true. And it is really difficult to track a bird like that, so applause from me to, Mr. Lieder. 🙂

  • Diane said:

    She is the wind, bright, bold, weaving her hypnotic hold in flight. Stunning, charismatic cardinal, all who gaze are beholden to her dominance!
