leaves wings and other such things

a still life

bird fish still life

those outside

dancing about in branches & moving through
wind stirred oceans

fill the air with

rustling, chattering, splashing, whistling,
barking, howling.

for those placed within

life is still

enclosed in wood grain veneer

adorned with graceful glass containers
of pure blue water

echoing an unsettling quiet.

The fact that we have to keep animals in captivity is a sign of the abject failure of us as a species.
The long-term goal should be that we do not need to keep animals in captivity. . . . 

—Damian Aspinall, wildlife park owner, to the Evening Standard.
