Spring migration

Like streptococcal chains
Against a microscopic backdrop
Of white circular sky
Gaggles of geese dot the far horizon,
Frozen in flight.

Streptococcus pyogenes

  1. DJE says:

    Great concept and image — makes me also think of darkfield microscopy of syphilis — check Google Images for examples. Similarities in all things. D

  2. A beautifully expressed combination of two of my favorite things. Canadian Geese (when they are on the return, as it signifies the return of spring!) and microbiology.
    Continued success!
