Starlings by the hundreds!

Early June.. Our cat Tas watches a flock of starlings in the grass. I couldn't get over the size of this group of birds! They were all very hyper, pecking at the ground wildly.
We had a family of starlings nesting in our attic this spring, was interesting to listen to the baby birds as they grew, suddenly thier voices became mature and soon after they flew away. Guess they think this is thier garden as well, they invited thier extended family over for dinner!
So.. this brings me up to date...

4 June 2007



After the storm, my mind cleared.


And a high wind arose and blew the tropics north.







running quartz crystals through a blender.

sand through your engines.

bubbles in your bays.

estuaries reaching out toward forbidden seas...

sand through your eyes.

Calm as baby's breath


as peaceful as the storm's eye


Clouds spread and drawn with rough strokes of stratospheric winds


a warm and windy tropical day.










7 June 2007


Black water at dusk.

Lighting on the horizon.


Warm winds coming in across the darkening waters.


A flash of white wings as an egret takes flight.


And Thunder like God clearing his throat.










8 June 2007




Morning star in the still of the clear, dark waters.


a sky as clear eyed as a young girl.


bruised and tattered storm remnants limp off in the gathering light.












9 June 2007



Tickled her fancy.


giggling all the day long.


pretty good for a Saturday.


Clouds on the lake floating aimlessly by.



She smiled big--grinned really.
