on flight

starlings stir up dusk
sky's grey palette liquified
fish out of water


n.b. A photograph cannot capture the wonder of starlings numbering hundreds or thousands flying in a free-wheeling flock, a mumuration. Yesterday, late afternoon, Great Yarmouth; the magic of flight, the joy of collective effort, the beauty of life.

Face, teeth and hair smart

Jump in car to seize the day

Unlease toxic fumes.
