The Thinker

From the sculpture by Rodin to a swallow on the wire; thinking is part and parcel of being alive. This swallow was photographed the other day. It just caught my attention as it sat on the wire, contemplating who knows what!

Here is a poem;

Grey clouds, rain.

bird on a wire,

Contemplating the moment.

Wondering and pondering.

Hoping for bright days,

to soar into the firmament.

Held by wings and air and sheer

exuberance.

Breaking the bonds

of earth to reach beyond.

Grace filled space in

the arms of the Creator; ‘Breathe

on me, breath of God, fill me with

life anew’.

That is enough

for me.
