Being Content With Wakened Birds   Leave a comment

She says, “I am content when wakened birds,

Before they fly, test the reality

Of misty fields, by their sweet questionings;

But when the birds are gone, and their warm fields

Return no more, where, then, is paradise?”

— from Sunday Morning by Wallace Stevens

Cedar Waxwing (1 of 1)-10-2-72

This time of year flocks of Cedar Waxwings descend on berry-laden trees and hedges in
Sabino Canyon. They are sociable at all seasons, and it is rare to see just one waxwing.
Occasionally a line of waxwings perched on a branch will pass a berry back and forth,
from bill to bill, until one of them swallows it.

Neck and legs sticking way out

What natural grace.
