Ascend the Corbie Steps


On a tilt of light

ascend the corbie steps.


Perch with the birds

of the shadow world.



A big thanks to Ms AM for the photograph. A serendipitous encounter with light, shadow, birds and time.

Now playing: Seth Cluett – ‘A Radiance Scored With Shadow’ from Objects of Memory.

    I can imagine watching the noble steps with the birds on top nodding and stretching their wings – like shadow puppetry, commandeered by nothing but chance.
