I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing...St John 15: 5

The black-capped Chickadee
Basking in heavenly light
Glowing around his body
Appeared more than Godly
On Easter night...
Above the branches
Of an olive Tree...
He looked up to see
The holy father and son...
Reuniting with the sun...
Poetry by me, AJP

I shot this picture at 6:30 tonight and the chickadee was in the right spot back lit
by the setting sun..It was bathed in light and it almost took my breath away,
I was so surprised as I was not expecting it,
