minimalist — a random bird on a post

minimalist

When I hoped I feared,
Since I hoped I dared;
Everywhere alone
As a church remain;
Spectre cannot harm,
Serpent cannot charm;
He deposes doom,
Who hath suffered him.

Emily Dickinson

I know I’ve been posting an awful lot of birds lately; believe me, I’m the first one to go “huh?”.

Indulge me with one more. I just love this little guy sitting on a post in the middle of the ocean. Do birds ponder their existence? Who knows!

I’ve been pondering quite a bit lately, so that might explain why I’m drawn to these kinds of images. Anyway, it’s those two opening lines I’ve highlighted that speak to me here. They capture both the fear of daring to do something, and the hope it brings.

  1. Thanks for commenting you guys — I think you’re all right — what bird ponders except about catching the fish 🙂

    LOL! And yet … maybe that’s a lofty goal for a birdbrain ! :-0
