Nor a Bird More Pure

I soar above the red rooftops
of the City

above the steeples
of the
Mission Dolores Church

below the dusty ledges
of the
Transamerica Pyramid

there never was a sky more
blue

nor a bird more pure.

#WordlessWednesday: The Merry Month of May

It seems there are as many ways of doing “Wordless Wednesday” as there are bloggers.

I define ‘wordless’ as non-verbal, which is why I include music in my #WordlessWednesday post.

I prefer symphonies, and flash mobs because they are wordless examples of
our collaborative genius of as a species.

This Mozart piano concerto, played and conducted by Mitsuko Uchida
makes me proud to belong to the human race.

Her passion is contagious.

Enjoy
