November Waxwings

I watch the waxwings
In front of the library
They take off into the air
In their murmuration
Inviolable and entire in the way they move
Sometimes to chase off a larger bird
Even one that was minding its own business
Sometimes for reasons I know nothing about
But then sometimes
They rise higher
Further and further
Up
Their formation
Coming      apart
Rising
                                     so far
so small

           looking

                              like
                   ashes

                                         floating

But eventually
They come back down
They come together again
Looking like something knitting itself together again
Looking like something healing

Thank you for my snowflake cookie anonymous flister! It even has those wonderful candy ball bearings on it!

I realize it was made because someone said, "Hey, let's do Tin Man but with Alice in Wonderland, but I liked Alice. As a Primeval fan it was lovely to see Andrew Lee Potts and Matt Frewer BROKE MY HEART.

Have some links that show more reasons why corvids rock:
Ravens form a wake-like gathering after 2 electrocuted
Clever ravens cooperatively hunt

And another link I've been holding onto for a while now:
How Nonsense Sharpens the Intellect

Note that the New York Times has not forgotten to capitalize their article titles, even though many other news organizations, including the BBC, have. There was even a bit in the Magazine section of the BBC News site today defending their recent practice of not capitalizing acronyms, which I think is just an excuse for not knowing how to turn off AutoCorrect. Grr. Not on, BBC News.
