B&W Photo Challenge: silhouette

Photo Friday: Stillness

Silence in the Sky

but it was a warm day and the night was clear
the wind was damp as invisible droplets
float by the air

and the sky, bare and cloudless
i stand and wait to see the first star
i could almost touch
the scent of flowers floating in the air

i taste the air with warm shadows
as i rest my wings a moment
because there was no wind

still waters carpet the sea
as i glance at little ripples
silently moving towards my feet

a sudden laugh filled the air
as i look by the distance
to find you.. just there
staring back at me.

note: this is my entry for Black and White Photo Challange. But currently, their site is showing a 404. i hope they fix the prob soon.
For now, just click the image to view it a flickr, or see the full size

update: also posted this for "Photo Friday - stillness"

i get the error message there too, hopefully they are just revamping the site as it always took a long time to download - and I have cable; so it must be extremely slow on dial up

the rooster on the rooftop reminds me of the mornings in Laguna twenty something ago; when I was forced to wake up before the break of dawn to sweep our guava fenced backyard before I go to school.

I miss the sound of mornings back home.

You make it all come back to me. Thanks for that.
