Funeral Pyre

i stare at the starling
shot by a troublesome neighbor
there are tiny crosses fashioned 
of twigs, leaves and acorns
children have built a pyre
the bird is lovingly laid on top
all that is missing is the fire


  1. Troubling and beautiful.

    If I use internet explorer I can leave comments. I prefer Chrome, but something is screwy with it. :-(

  2. Thank you, Wilma. I had that same thought when I first saw the scene.

    Yes, browsers can be a problem. I prefer to use Safari, but sometimes have to use Chrome. I haven't had any of sites demand Explorer, but I won't be surprised when it happens... :-(

  3. This is so sad.... But a touching tribute to the bird...
