When birds will land
And trust us enough
On a finger or Hand…
That will be the day
Of our success
As humans… 🌼🐥
There is a little bird that has been visiting my studio for a while. She comes with a flock but quickly separates from them and sits by my window, looking inwards to where I work. She gives one loud peck on the window and when we make eye contact, she leaves. This is her way of demanding peanuts, something she loves more than the Bajra and rice I put out for her and her friends! So, I drop whatever I am doing, shell the peanuts and then crush them so that my friend can have her special treat😊! 🐤
I was rushing out in the morning and didn’t have time to leave food for all the birds and squirrels who look forward to their meal outside my balcony.
I requested my son, who is a Public Policy major, to do the needful. Just before leaving, I asked him, “You do know what to do na?”
His reply, “I have to ensure a democratic destribution of birdfeed so that no one creature is neglected or exploited. For this I shall make small piles of grains all over, ensuring that the smallest and the largest…the strongest and the weakest will have their fair share, without fighting for it.”
Needless to say, I left in great haste!
Make a safe place for the birds to visit and sit back and enjoy an ever changing scenario of beauty right outside your window. Never has so little effort yielded such rich dividends!
I have my camera ready with a zoom lens for just such scenes…the ones that not only give me joy,but in their sharing, bring a smile to so many faces.😀!
