Silent, Invisible Birds

Freckles:

This was nice! I had a beautiful new cave for resting and napping. It wasn’t quite big enough for exploring, but it had a cozy feel and would keep any circling hawks or eagles away. Not that I’d seen any birds hovering in the Other World. But, they might have the silent, invisible kind here. One could never be sure. I had no intention of becoming some big, dumb bird’s supper!
I snuggled in decided to take a little nap. It was a restless sleep with big black birds suddenly swooping down to grab me. I ran from rock to rock, escaping just in the nick of time with each swoop. Finally, with at least twenty birds circling overhead, I had no place to go. My way was blocked by the portal to the unexplored territory. Dare I take a chance and enter that unknown land? Just as I was about to leap, I woke up.

Freckles ... did you eat too much bok choy? Or maybe chard? That was frightening. We had to hang old CD's on strings last summer to scare off those big black dumb birds.
