Love how little incidents together can generate a mellow mood! Lovely little poem!
This was a concrete interpration.I think I saw his shoulders relax a little.
i am glad for that provision...and not a bad mood to have...
To think of the bird and those wings as shade—like that a lot! Very well done :)
An almost perfect match of words and image. Thanks for sharing this. James.
I like the synergy of bird and statue, and that you have picked the shelter of the spreading wings as central to the poem.
I like your mellow mood and words :)
I love the personification of the stature, his thoughts, and how the birds wide wingspan provides shade. That a statue can mellow and relax makes me smile. Thanks for sharing today!
I just love these creative combos of Picture Prompt with my Sunday 160. Thanks for playing along.

Glad he found his chill moment. Poor bloke isn't getting any peace today!

Nice concise piece, Gautami, so much in so few words.Pamela
I enjoyed this imagery very much, thank you for sharing.-Nathan.
I admit it took a few lines before I realized you were speaking for the statue, not the bird. Nicely done!
The bird as a 'shade'--nice suprising take! Thanks!
Gautami, this is one of my favorites I've seen of yours. The image was very sweet, but the words really set the mood.Glad you are back to mellow! Amyhttp://sharplittlepencil.wordpress.com/2011/03/21/a-mothers-ferocious-love/
That is certainly a "the glass is half full" interpretation of this photo (shading my head vs crapping on it)! Good job.
We all see this often..but to think of lines like these and then to weave them..very nice..
