adding two more lines
the wish had been ignited
burnt edges blaze bright
hidden behind singed sunlight
dangled bright her expression

haven’t you ever wanted to send a letter/email knowing the contents burned…..

Immature Common Yellowthroat Warbler (Geothlypis trichas)-8.jpg

observation flame
locked in light along a line
dark distant parade
quiet crackling chorus
firebreak fragments falling

thank you andree for the use of your beautiful bird photos!!

adrift in another life living in the southwest of australia.. the shadows of burning falling scent draws me out into night… conscious curiosity found myself watching the firebreaks burning fierce at night in the distance paddocks from one end of the horizon to the other seemingly creeping closer and closer.
