Swan Sea

Swans mesmerize me. Snow white creatures with charisma that captures me in the net of wonder. So big, so soft, so brave. So arrogant, so elegant.

Birds I approach unbelievably near.
Birds I respect with awe.

“No seabird is anchored to land; only its shores or its islands mean anything to them.”

Philip Hoare “RISINGTIDEFALLINGSTAR”, 2017

***

Gulbji mani valdzina. Sniegbaltas būtnes ar magnētisku harizmu. Lieli, maigi, drosmīgi. Tik aroganti un eleganti. Putni, kuriem var pieiet neticami tuvu, bet ar nepārejošu bijību.

“Neviens jūras putns nav piesiets zemei; tikai krasti vai salas viņiem vispār kaut ko nozīmē.”

Philip Hoare “RISINGTIDEFALLINGSTAR”, 2017
