Be Like the Bird | #WordlessWednesday

Be like the bird, who
pausing in his flight
on limb too slight,
feels it give way beneath him
yet sings,
knowing he has wings.

Victor Hugo, Les chants du crépuscule (Songs of Dusk), 1836

About the image: Did you spot the bird? I shot the “birdie-in-tree” a few days ago while checking out the scenery of my aunt’s new home. Even as I captured the image I knew I would [post] process it as a silhouette. The final lines of Hugo’s Songs of Dusk are a perfect fit. Don’t you think?

    That’s a beautiful silhouette, Chandra! It fits so perfectly with the lines by Victor Hugo! The poem is a reminder of that faint ray of hope being a harbinger of optimism that we all need right now.
    Thank you for linking up this week.
    A happy #ww and a blessed week ahead to you, dear Chandra.
    Stay safe and take care.
