My Anger

between the rain
and my anger ...
magpie song

zwischen dem Regen
und meiner Wut ...

  1. Oh, I love this one, Kirsten! The magpie's song is so magical . . .

  2. Thank you, Margaret!
    With so many gumtrees on our property we are never short of magpies and their songs. :)
    I took the photo this morning in the rain -- it's one of four really big gumtrees we have (approx. 30 meters tall). So majestic!
