Further information

Like a thousand sparks
from a thousand fires
light moves through leaves

Like a thousand dreams of a sunlit afternoon
high in the trees you sit
Watching the folly
of a thousand painted marks making a thousand leaves
and the branches on which you sit

A thousand feathers make a single bird
and a thousand parts make
just one

Three birds
Six wings
One sun

Ben Milne, 2018
