Red Wing Blackbirds at Jalama Beach

Winter afternoons continued

Over stress of ancient grapevines and white winds of ocean.

 

Along the coast,

Feathered clouds continued in lines of aerial waves –

Voicing the brief day’s preserved light.

 

Red wing blackbirds sang in shadows of a thorn tree,

As twilight returned in clear determination and forgiveness.

 

In the song is the salvation.
