A bird with no name

After two days of sailing into the blueAfter two days of sailing into the blue

I took this series of photos when I had a minor injury and couldn't leave the house for two days. So I took my camera and sat on the roof terrace of the appartement where I stayed, listened to music and enjoyed the scenery. And I took photos - photos of all the birds that flew by. The last three photos of this series I took two days later at the beach, on "healthy feet" again.

One of the birds told me this.

Honestly
or.... maybe I just fell asleep under the hot sun, on the hot roof terrace with the music of "America" and a dream whispered all this into my ear.

I saw a black seagull on a black roof

 

 

The black seagull turned into a black dove that rose into the still grey skyThe black seagull turned into a black dove that rose into the still grey sky

I flew through the sky beside a bird with no name

 

 

It felt good when the sun sunk into the seaIt felt good when the sun sunk into the sea

In the sea you can remember your nameIn the sea you can remember your name

'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain

'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain

And began to turn redAnd began to turn red

And left the sky so redAnd left the sky so red

For a brief moment the color was goneFor a brief moment the color was gone

After nine days I watched the sun come up againAfter nine days I watched the sun come up again

And a bird turned into a dudeAnd a bird turned into a dude

And a bird turned into a dude

 

 


A crazy dude with a wing above his headA crazy dude with a wing above his head

The dude flew over roofsThe dude flew over roofs

And boats and rocks and thingsAnd boats and rocks and things

And disappeared over the oceanAnd disappeared over the ocean

And disappeared over the ocean

 

 

The ocean is a desert with it's life undergroundThe ocean is a desert with it's life underground

The ocean is a desert with it's life underground

 

 

Astonished birds crossing the sky aboveAstonished birds crossing the sky above

Astonished birds crossing the sky above

 

 

The ocean floats beneath the birdsThe ocean floats beneath the birds

The ocean floats beneath the birds

 

 

They spread their wingsThey spread their wings

And gently sailAnd gently sail

And gently sail 

 

 

Into a peaceInto a peace

Into a peace

 

 

Man can not understandMan can not understand

Man can not understand

 

 

You see I've flew through the sky beside a bird with no nameYou see I've flew through the sky beside a bird with no name

You see I've flew through the sky beside a bird with no name
