Murmuration

Linked to the chain of universe speak
the colors cascade the thoughts of those inspired.
We glimpse the beauty
as sudden moments thrust themselves
unexpectedly before our souls,
reaching in to pull the strings
of awe and miracles
as life spirals and sweeps in
carrying us away.
Shades of hues we are drawn to
bring the eye in closer to see
a thousand bits of nature hung
on silver clouds drifting in their rhythmic way
no rhyme or reason
to the amazing moments
this life gifts to us,
if we see and become aware
like our steady breath
giving sustenance,
we carry the images of the presence
of a present on high.

Learning a new word today: murmuration (a flock of starlings) and this image captured my interest, blue hues and a moving show I’d love to see in my lifetime.

  1. thanks Betty, I may even get one out today, listening to the thunder and watching the Macy parade, a calm peaceful grazing on good yummies kind of day 🙂 Happy Turkey day to you too (Thanksgiving) 🙂
