  1. Beautiful. Puts me in mind of the red tail hawks that inhabit the flat farm land of SE Missouri. They settle on power lines, one per line between the poles. This little space of territory is theirs. No crossing between unless there is a raid, or a lady, or the random cross-territorial mouse to catch. Fun to watch.

    1. Thank you, Anne. As we would travel the highways between SW Missouri and Texas for the last 5 decades, the hawks were visible on fence posts and treetops. My husband would point them out to my son and I to our dismay. "There in the line of trees is a hawk". That line would be several hundred miles away so that meant Hubby was sightseeing not watching the road!

    'along edge of red clouds'

    1. Thank you Kim. I like how a sentence will come to mind then one has to work out how to make it work.
