winged migration collage

This is a photo collage of some pelicans I saw at the beach and some stained glass. When I saw the birds it reminded me of a chant sung by Libana:

“There’s a river of birds in migration, a nation of women with wings.”
There’s a river of birds in migration, a nation of children with wings.
There’s a river of birds in migration, a nation of people with wings.”

Listen to a clip sung by Libana:

The 1st line of this chant is attributed to Oregon Women’s Land Community. I’m not sure who added the 2nd-3rd lines. I heard it on a Native American Chant CD. Sometimes we sing this chant at a Taize gathering in my home.

A friend of mine shared a Youtube video about a winged migration, with music by Nick Cave. I am touched by the beauty, focus, determination and grace of these geese..
