alone, a bright moon hangs on

the dawn chorus

  1. You’ve captured the dawn chorus very well. Again — I like the way the second line is broken up. And Donna Summer’s voice is quite bird-like here too 🙂

    • And all those birds call-and-responsing has a kind of pulsing sound to it, which just reminded me of this. Plus I’m pretty sure birds dig disco 🙂

      Yes, I managed to adapt my ‘dawn’ misfire cunningly here, so at least that isn’t nagging at me anymore!

    • Thanks, moondustwriter. I was only reporting what I saw – in one side of the sky the full moon was bright in the dark blue, while on the other horizon it was turning yellow already – as the birds all sang away.

      I’ve no idea if that’s usual at this time of the year since I normally prefer to avoid early mornings 🙂

    • Thanks, Chèvrefeuille. I’m glad you enjoyed it. As I said to moondustwriter, this is actually the scene I saw: in one side of the sky the full moon was bright in the dark blue, while on the other horizon it was turning yellow already – as the birds all sang away 🙂
