Invisible Connection   20 comments

Raven’s call stirs a an invisible summer breeze lifting a feather that twists and floats magically for a time that can’t be counted. Raven dances around a blue glass bead and calls again.

Dear BJ,

I remembered some ravens playing in a field that Sif and I watched while we were waiting for the ferry in Haines, Alaska.  One in particular had a blue glass bead that that it picked up and carried around then talked to.  Earlier that morning I was on the balcony of our hotel overlooking the sound and a feather floated past the balcony .  I was so mesmerized I couldn’t stop watching long enough to call Sif to watch.  I was working on the open prompt for Trifextra Week-Seventy Three and I started with hot air and got here.  Somehow I find them connected.

With Love,

  7. you write of my home with love. I know that sign from Homer – was just there last weekend. It’s less than two hours away from me. 🙂 And, the ravens of which you speak? Tricksters that they are . . . two of them caused a two hour power outage July 4th. 🙂

    • We really enjoyed Anchorage and all the great places to visit in the state. The wildlife is definitely inspiring and intertwined with life everywhere.
