stone #19 - starlings and the sun

a clutch of starlings glide and shimmer,
transfixed by the sun, so low in the sky that
it sits in the trees' canopies like a great eagle,
a mystical force, seeing beneath your skin
and clutching your bones tight.

"clutch of starlings" is such an evocative way of describing their community. I enjoyed watching them with you. Thanks.
