Tears of crows
The days are long, the nights are longer. Time seems to have been frozen in place. The world is grey as is my heart. The color of clouds that do not part. I welcome the mood of this sullen day.
Strangely now there arrives a pair of crows. They do not call out as crows are wont to do. They follow me silently. I wonder why. Their presence intrigues me, for this is most peculiar.
As I walk through these woods, remembering our life together, my heart is filled with tears I cannot shed. We used to walk hand in hand, until we could not. It is difficult to hold your hand as I pushed the chair in which you sat, or even as I walked beside you as you rode upon your scooter. And now there is no hand to hold.
Strangely now there arrives a pair of crows. They do not call out as crows are wont to do. They follow me silently. I wonder why. Their presence intrigues me, for this is most peculiar. I wander along and continue to ponder the reason you no longer accompany me.
But now as my heart overflows and my eyes begin to fill, the clouds begin to drop their burden of moisture, and the crows begin to cry, their tears falling down upon my face. No one can say that I cannot weep, but no one can tell that I did or did not as the tears of my eyes are mixed with the tears of the crows.
What is longing, when there is loss? Let's thank the Lord for the experience. Do not mourn my passing. Instead celebrate our life together, and the love that we shared. Know that you will always be loved.
Prose by Jeffrey S Porterfield 'The tears of crows', written by him after seeing my photo.
'Tears of crows' is a photo in the gallery ‘Stray birds‘.
I made this photo in winter, in my former hometown Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
This photo is available in various sizes, in centimeters or in inches. Please let me -or the Saatchi Art staff- know your wishes and I'll upload it in the desired size.
I moved to Denmark in July 2018.

The photos are for sale in a limited edition art print of 28 prints in total.
For every photograph I sell a maximum of 4 signed and numbered prints per size 'group' within the total of 28 prints.

* Fine art cotton paper is made of 100% pure and natural cotton fibers.
Its natural white, smooth and velvety matt surface, the wonderful feel and the perfect color reproduction make it the perfect basis for long-lasting works of art.
A special advantage is its extreme longevity. The aging resistance is due to pure, acid-free paper, which does not require any optical brighteners or other additives used in papers. The paper does not yellow, the prints remain beautiful under normal conditions for a lifetime. The extremely long shelf life is certified according to ISO 9706 (FograCert 28800).
All my photos are 'made in camera'. This means that I never use filters or editing software to manipulate my photos.
