Thermal Imaging

Above, an infinity of blue –
deep and still and featureless.
a distant tchacking heralds a tide of jackdaws,
spiralling in a whirlpool of flight,
a helix of black morse code,
dots and dashes revealing
the invisible,
like dust brushed onto fingerprints,
nature’s imagers.

Linking this to The Sunday Muse Blogspot, where Carrie is focussing on all things feathered this week. After seeing the prompt, I sat outside in the shade with my coffee and saw a swathe of hundreds of jackdaws overhead. They caught a thermal and twirled higher and higher. It was wonderful to watch.
