A skink got away,
Koi mouths were heard suctioning for food,
a cottontail paused for a moment,
and a squirrel showed me how clever she is.
The bugs loved the hot humidity but I wasn’t too thrilled with it.
Hummingbirds chitted and hummed and a chipmunk investigated behind the waterfall.
Then there was silence.
Not a bird or critter in sight,
except for one, far away in an observation tower.
GO, COOPER, GO!
They've been away for a long time. Now returning for regular meals.
I found feather evidence later.
Glad I missed the action, in a way.
One less Mourning Dove, I’m a little sad to say.
Why do so many of us rush out to the mall just to browse or go to a movie theatre, waste gasoline, and never step outside to notice what goes on right under our noses? It's all free admission for crying out loud!
For those who are suffering from the effects from Hurricane Ike, I wish you normalcy real soon.
