A beautiful line, “written on the wind”

Wade Davis in The Globe and Mail, June 12, 2015:  “…let me note that in Borneo, even the flight of a hornbill has meaning, as if it were a cursive script of nature, written on the wind”.

David Abram, The Spell of the Sensuous, 1996:  “The swooping flight of birds is a kind of cursive script written on the wind.”

Lars Petter Storm Torjussen, writing about David Abram in Transcendentalism Overturned: From Absolute Power of Consciousness, 2011:  “…the flight of swooping birds as a kind of cursive script written in the wind.”
