In the amber light,
Just before the darkness of night,
The starlings took flight,
In a dazzling dance that took my breath away.
Synchronized in every sway
They whirled in waves every which way.
A mesmerizing aerial ballet.
A staggering thousand, maybe more
Flying in unison over the shore.
Dancing to music I\'ll never know,
For reasons beyond where my imagination can go.
An audience of one, with a tear-streaked face,
for witnessing such beauty...such grace.
