Ocean Waves, Part 2

Our visit was brief

But necessary.

 

It was good to

Get back to my roots-

Seeing you

Brought back so many memories.

 

Hearing you call out to me

Made me feel like a toddler

Stumbling over their feet

When they’re learning to walk,

But trusting

That you’ll be there

To catch them

When they fall.

 

Thank you for reminding me

Of who I am-

The strength I was born with.

 

Our bittersweet goodbyes

Will not last forever.

 

I leave,

Walking away

With sand trailing behind me,

But turn back

For one last glance.

 

Just in time

To watch you wave.

Warmth

You are irresistible with

Those thoughtful eyes

That shadowed smile

And the way you say

“I love you.”

A treat.

Comfort.

I’m drinking you in

Like a warm mug

Of lightly sweetened tea

On a cold winter day.

Cuddle up with me

Like a weighted blanket.

Warm my body

My mind

And my soul.

Had a lot of exciting news about the quails. We started seeing mama bird more frequently. Here she is pictured lying on her eggs, and soon after, they hatched!

Unfortunately the dogs found them before we did. But nobody was hurt! Sadie got a hold of one of the babies, but the baby bird got away safely. I also took a peek at their hide out in the backyard!

I’ve been seeing more and more baby quail even well into the summer months. This is the most recent one that was caught straggling behind it’s family. If we’re keeping score, it’s Quail: 3, Dogs: 0.
