It’s been two days of air messages – from lots of different birds. Can’t wait to see what today brings!
Thanksgiving morning, first thing, I looked out the office window to see – Hawk! Beautiful, strong, proud, still. Calm and fierce. I keep binoculars on the desk just for Hawk. When I took a break from admiring to go put in my contacts and have a better look – s/he moved on. Perhaps to find another audience.
Later, as I was driving along the expressway to my niece’s home – starlings swirling in incredible numbers. I have never seen such a dense flock, creating such artistry in the sky. Curves of birds moving and meshing in and out of soft patterns.
And then yesterday, as the early sun popped out I was admiring the sky while feeding The Goddess’ creatures. There was a small group of shiny white birds playing in the sunshine, looking like glistening snowflakes high up directly over me. More came in from every direction, flying in to join the play. As they were on their way in, I could see a brown and striped edge to their wings, and the whiteness and smallness of their bodies. As soon as they were overhead in the Great Eastern Sun-light, they shone as if they were lightly coated in gold. Slowly they dissipated off to the north over the trees. An incredible vision that felt like time out of time.
I don’t think I’m going to look them up in Ted Andrew’s Animal Speak, or in the Medicine Cards, or in the Celtic Animal Oracle. I think I’m just going to keep Hawk’s fierce joy in my heart, along with the message of lightness, playfulness and joy from the Starlings and the Shiny Small Ones.
p s I kept expecting the Starlings to turn into the Eye of Horus, as they did in Sherry’s wonderful dream… : >
