A cloud dropped in yesterday morning leaving water droplets everywhere.
The goldfinch’s yellow coat glowed through the fog. A cautious cotton-tailed rabbit ran for the tall grass when he saw me walking down the path. In the woods, a pensive robin puffed up his feathers against the chill.
The catbird was unfazed. He chattered his tale of adventure and intrigue from deep in a bush. I almost missed the chipmunk. He was as still as the tree trunk under his feet. I heard a bird singing and looked away for a moment. When I looked back, he was gone. Did he disappear into the hole in the tree?
