Sky Watching

She stands with her head tilted back and her eyes full of wonder. Watching as a swirl of jackdaws whirl up into the empty sky. The breeze lifts her hair and places it back down again, gentle on her shoulders. "It looks like someone has shaken a brush and splattered the heavens with drops of black ink" he says. "I think that maybe they are trying to write poetry up there " says she.

This put a little tear in my eye because I have seen that very image you convey except in my case the birds were smaller and it looked more as if they were writing music. This is so beautiful!
