Balcony still life


"I would like to place
that nightly blackbird
on a branch in a poem,
but after all why should
I, it´s perched there
where it should be: in
a poem out there.


Thank you so much, just
applause will do, that´s
how yardbird charlie
dismissed the flaring
and the blackbird
in my garden too
can make do with
some musing after
a stirring solo
at the slightest clap of hand
he swishes off into
the dark."

(Roland Jooris: Yardbird)

My favourite bird of the week (at least...):
Mickey Rourke as Armand "Blackbird" Degas
in "Killshot"...

Looks like a kissing bird. :)

I love shadows and the worlds that they create.

lovely bird. your balcony seems so calm and restful

Yes, I like shadows, too... That balcony, well, it´s a buffer zone between inside + out (+ definitely not enough "nature" that one wouldn´t feel the need to enhance the bird population...)
