30 minutes before sunset
A farmer in Kofu, Japan clears his field of silver grass and other foliage before the weather turns cold.
I am not very good at bird identification, so I am asking the WordPress community to help me out. I snapped the above image in Tachikawa (Japan) yesterday. I see them often in Yamanashi Prefecture, where I live, as well. Any ideas?
Update: Since making this post, I have learned that the bird in question is a Japanese wagtail.
sewn into my smile,
must we part
by new moon,
or can we begin again
under sun’s cover?
Drowsy pigeons peck at puddles of crumbs as
emaciated ravens console wavering widows.
Cadavers flown home on thrones of hushed
bones dream of nothing new, evermore.
