SUMMER FLIGHT INTO FREEDOM

I want to share with you something from last week’s trip to  Germany, a lovely text by  Claudia who kindly helped me there with all the photo shoots and  one of the photos of a nude rider in the beach,   inspired by a storm of swans showing us the way to summer freedom…

quoting:

SUMMER FLIGHT INTO FREEDOM

Flying into northern summer

Where sun’s reign is brief and precious

And free creatures dive into dawn

With easy, unrestrained confidence.

Did any proud swan ever peer down

Instead of ahead?

What would tempt him to seek grace

Also in nether dimensions?

Perhaps to spy a creature

Dancing with water and foam and light

Endowed with legs and wings alike

Its curving flanks in speed aburst.

SUMMER FLIGHT INTO FREEDOM

SUMMER FLIGHT INTO FREEDOM

Would a swan envy this earth-bound creature,

If for a moment only?

… on that day, the birds almost lost formation

But only almost.
