Day of Portents

I heard them flying,
the cranes singing in their flight
and so I looked up,
against a glowing sundog,
they circled, then flew westward.

Ah day of portents,
you have captured me off guard
beneath gliding wings
and a perfect bright circle –
What mysteries will follow?
And there I was, watching the cranes and a perfect circle around the sun...it was amazing. I've seen sandhills before, but never a migration flock in flight....

Found this little gem as I was researching images of Sundogs/parhelia here on DA. Linked it from my journal and included your icon. You sum it up well.
