INSPIRED BY THE FORMATIONS OF THOUSANDS OF STARLINGS.

We million starlings are the murmuration.
We, the murmuration, sculpt the air.
No starling leads us, no starling follows. We cooperate in the synchronised democracy of nature.
We paint in all dimensions, we transcend your man-made geometry.
We are the spirit of sunset. We bathe in the last light of day.
We feel the wind, we feel the sky.
We shape nature, we are nature. We create the beautiful, we become the beautiful.
We revel in our multitude. Together we are our art.

There are energies that arrange atoms into diamonds.
There are ideologies that inspire humans into nations
But what sacred intellect composes starlings into murmurations?

We twist and swoop to feel the substance of space.
We tumble and ripple to test what is possible.
We dance to celebrate the joy of mere existence.
We gather and play only to say here we are!
