Flight: A limited edition Fine Arts Book
by William Charles Schirado
Teresa Marie Assenzo
October 28 was a cool Fall day. The mountains
carved a jagged edge against the clear sky.
village workers were astonished to see the birds
separate to a never before seen distance. The
village chief watched in disbelief as the birds
turned and descended at steep, intersecting
angles. Village elders watched calmly as the
birds increased speed, leveled their flight and
continued on course. The instant before collision, each bird seemed to stop
in midair suspended for a brief second, floating, before grabbing the others'
talons. Merging in a deadly handshake, they tumbled toward earth without
movement of wing, embracing, claws entwined like roots of an ancient tree.
