WBW 29 Yonder Bird


American Goldfinch
 Ode to THE Birder

Oh Bird in the Sky
Flying so High

Dipping, soaring,
Gliding right by

ISO too low
F-stop too high

O-Aperture Priority
Shutter too Slow
OH DANG....
Where did that
Bird Go?

 S Hickman



Eastern Bluebird
Tripod or'e my shoulder
Out to field I go
Spirits er' a'soarin' 
Expectations grow-n
Or'e the stream
Around 'er bend 
Quietly he's waiting
There on yonder limb.

S. Hickman





Chipping Sparrow
Little Brown Bird    
Catching my eye

Sparrow or Wren
Taken to sky


Oh lark of yon' meadow
Take thee a rest

I'll snap a photo
Whilst you look
Your Best.

S. Hickman

  23. That was a riot! If you can reveal your secret one day let me know how you manage to channel Emily Dickenson! I could use a shot of E.E. Cummings. Of course I love the goldfinch shot, It's perfect, but today it's the poetry that's floating my boat!
    Outstanding S. Hickman!
