Bird therapy….

Nine grain sandwich bread…. had grown a little stale… all crumpled up in my anxious hands… tossed out into the air.. soft winds set it to sail..

The Cardinals come slow strutting around…. with their sunlit fiery red illumination…. making them seem so dominant…

I’m adding peanuts to the mix… Blue Jays swooping down from the trees again and again… then flying to nearby branches to crack and feast…

Woodpeckers make their head bobbing cameo appearances…. not exactly happy with the menu… snoop around then go their way pecking…

Large Edgar Allan black birds… cawing on their mission.. forming a perimeter …positioning… shadowing to take over…. turning it all into a frenzied fight for food… reminds me of Hitchcock’s…”The Birds”….

Then there’s me at my window scene…. coffee in hand… a splash of International Delight vanilla latte… cigarette smoke slow motion swirling… this mid-day bird watch… my therapy… as I exhale..
