Feathered hope

An early golden sunset;

Birds flying off into the horizon; echoes of their flight left on the water.

For some reason, this simple scene

Filled me with hope for the future

And peace in the present.

‘Hope is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul.’
— Emily Dickinson

  3. This is indeed so peaceful. I love the tree silhouettes against the horizon and the birds in the sky. Yes, this capture is full of promises and of good things to come. I can feel it too! I love that particular quotation by Emily Dickingson.


  4. Lovely and serene scene! The silhouetted trees, pier and flock of birds adds considerable interest to the shot. The calm water surface adds to the tranquility of the moment. Kudos!
