Eugi’s Weekly Prompt “Gratitude” June 1, 2020

Wander

Sidewalk Planter

I noticed on my walk yesterday that the neighborhood birds seems giddy. Take offs and landings have a different energy. They are moving around in larger cliques. A lot of camaraderie, a lot of chatter. Were they always this loud? They have all of outdoors to themselves! No humans disrupting their gatherings. No horns honking. They are reveling in this new found quiet. No droopy faces here.

Going for a walk these days has me feeling like I’m up to no good. Like I was sneaking out; all the time keeping everyone at a distance. This lovely setting sun was a welcome diversion ­čśŐ.
