ex voto

Souls of Birds. Robin L. Chandler, 2020.

Thank you for the hummingbirds…a glimmer of hope we cherish in our gardens.

Hear our votive prayer for the bird souls, thousands dead in New Mexico, victims of the wildfires fueled by climate change:

“And when bird song is gone will earth be the only witness?

Will only rocks grieve the absence?”

Do we pray for a miracle

or…

awake from the dream that our world consists of disconnected beings?

    • Thanks my dear friend for your warm words…and really a tribute to the birds and hummingbirds that grace our world and a work inspired by the painters Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keefe, and Martin Johnson Heade.
