The Sacred Old Flamingoes
Photograph - Photography
NOTE: FINE ART AMERICA WATERMARK WILL NOT APPEAR ON PURCHASED IMAGE.
"See how the sacred old flamingos come,
Painting with shadow all the marble steps:
Aged and wise, they seek their wonted perches
Within the temple, devious walking, made
To wander by their melancholy minds."
.. from Anashuya And Vijaya by William Butler Yeats
