Hope on Silent Wings
We try calling, a plaintive “who-cooks-for-you.” I see their faces full of anticipation, straining to hear a response. Children nestled tight against parent and grandparent, eyes wide, bright like those stars up above.
With each breath, I taste the autumn air, filled with the scent of sun-warmed leaves and the spicy aroma of the nearby marsh.
At night as I climb under our winter quilt, I imagine the chipmunk, snugged down in its den, lying on top of a thick pile of leaves.
Chickadees for the Day
Pshht, pshht, pshht we call as we sit on the frozen ground so close to one another that we can feel the cold spray of our neighbor’s pshht.
