black hawk down.

Standard

if you see mt. fuji, a hawk, and an eggplant on new year’s day,

you will be forever blessed.

-japanese proverb

coyote hills

or

if you go

to your middle daughter’s house

(one of the infamous h’s)

 for coffee

and see a

beautiful and wounded

black hawk

walking around the back yard

and it turns into

a

rescue adventure

and the

emergency animal  squad

shows up

within minutes

to help save him

and

restore him to good health

then your new proverb would be

‘if you see a pond, a hawk with a broken wing and a cappucino

on a random sunday, 

you will be forever blessed.’

and then

you will have your coffee

and wonder

if that just really happened

  1. So cool Beth – a chance to give an animal a helping hand – they are usually so independent of humans – except of course for Nacho – who pretends to be independent.

  2. This connects, in a little different way than any of your other writings … ‘Not saying better, but distinctly and elegantly different … The whole piece, yes … Call me a bit off, here, but there is a piece of transcendence, transcending the here-and-now into living outside yourself, entering the world of a winged creation of the Creator … finally, this last portion: “… and then you will have your coffee and wonder … if that just really happened …” Yeah, this was good.

  3. You reminded me of the owlet I saw during the day a few years back. I’m not sure if ‘she’ fell out of a tree or not. But she let me get close (though I didn’t have a camera a the time) and talk to ‘her’ for about fifteen minutes – though I didn’t get any answers 😉
    She tried to climb up the tree instead of flying. But ‘she’ finally must have flown off – I went inside to do something and when I returned ‘she’ was gone.

    Blessings always to you and yours – and to all ‘Thanksgiving’ wishes.
