with the absence of so many humans
the animals have reclaimed their territory
and even branched out to try things that might be new
when i saw this goose standing full of pride and bravado on top of the bridge
all i could think of was that scene from ‘titanic’ when jack said to rose:
“i’m the king of the world!”
and he believed that for a little while.
“the higher we soar the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly”
– friedrich nietzsche
these flamingos are playing on both sides of the fence
i wonder if they know they can fly.
“fences are made for those who cannot fly. ”
flying high at our class circus.
“as one, they leap, laughing,
and that is where we leave them –
mouths open, arms spread wide,
fingers splayed to take in the whole world,
bodies flying high in defiance of gravity,
as if they will never fall.”
– libba bray
this crew has built their own airplane.
they are flying to australia.
it will take them “70 miles long” to get there.
i have no doubt they will arrive safely and on time.
“to invent an airplane is nothing. to build one is something. but to fly is everything.
