The Watcher

Every morning, she is perched at the top on a “snag” (dead tree) above my house. Her job is to look out for possible food sources for her family. I smile when I see her sitting there, stoic and silent, as I put out bits of bread or food meant especially for her.Ā  The minute walk out the door, she begins to spread the work, “food-food” in her language. “Caw,caw,caw caw.’ If I don’t see her, I call out for her in the same “language, “Caw, caw,caw, caw. Soon she and her family arrive.Ā  We had a symbiosis between us, a bond. We are a part of each others’ world.

    Thank you for sharing a good-feely, positive story for a change. I bet they prefer your food to the road kill they pick up now and then. I’m #14 on the list.

    This is one of the rare stories that doesn’t deal with death this week. Most refreshing!

    I like the relationship your character has with the bird. Love the idea of symbiosis in all things (that’s the title of my novel šŸ™‚

    A sweet story about how we are all one in this world. I liked that she fed the bird without question and even spoke to it in its own language.

    Aloha,

    Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!
