Adolescent Swans

A  L  O  H  A !
Trumpeter  Swans

"I'm a silvery lined cloud
Drifting slowly 
through deep blue
Glowing on the edges
Inside a rain-
drenched hue."
            Terri Guillemets

Back in the Spring, with cygnets

"Details of the many walks
 I made along the crest 
have blurred, now, into a 
pleasing tapestry of grass 
and space and sunlight."  
                 Colin Fletcher

Necks growing now, but still not white like mom

"Growing up is hard, love. 
Otherwise everyone 
would do it."    
             Kim Harrison

I haven't decided if I want to grow up yet. I'm waiting to see how it works out for my 91 year old friend.
