a fallen crow...

"A photograph is a secret about a secret.
The more it tells you the less you know."
-d. arbus

You may never see a crow's nest.
I feel fortunate that the crow's built a nest in our trees.
But l'm sad that somehow the baby's ended up on the sidewalk
in front of our place, they died after a day or two, except one.
Now l generally don't interfere with nature, well there was that
once l help my cat kill a rabbit, oh and then there was that time
l had to shoot a wounded deer on the highway, but usually...

A friend took the last sickened baby crow, but he didn't make it.


"When beauty and Beauty meet
All naked, fair to fair,
The earth is crying-sweet,
And scattering-bright the air...

I am not a veteran of the heat.
I am a fall kind of guy, summer is complacent.
I am putting a new roof on this little home,
so no story this week, maybe you'll come back
late next week and l'll will show you something.
