how one bird changed the world

16 Jul 2016 spirit + soul

as the coffee brewed, i stood at my kitchen window, drinking my morning glass of water and watching a bird bathe. i watched him land beside a puddle just outside my wrought iron gate. he took a few tiny sips of the water, then waded in. i was melting from the his cuteness, turning into my own kind of puddle from behind my open kitchen window. he dipped his head into the puddle and threw the water back onto himself. heRead More
