Stone #18

Sitting at my desk, staring out of the window...

The mouse in me ducks as the buzzard swoops up and over my house, its speckled feathers the colour of cocoa powder and flour sifted together.

  1. Fun stone. Moreover, I love your comment: ...the working title for my planned award-winning collection of short stories.

    Thank you Man!!! I'm sure I'd win every prize going - but the lack of potential prize-winning stories is something of a fly in the ointment xx

  5. I'm having trouble with the identity when I sign up to "follow", but I am in there! I'm working on the problem which has something to do with the image, I think.

  6. I react a bit like that too on seeing a buzzard or other bird of prey at close range,

  7. Amazing description of a fantastic experience! I feel for the little creatures, but birds of prey are wonderful. "The mouse in me...." and "cocoa powder and flour sifted together." Brilliant! :D

  8. What a lovely image and how impossible to resist ducking at times like this.

  9. Thank you for all your lovely comments x

    Kat, I've had huge amounts of trouble with google and blogger when I've been trying to sign up to follow other blogs, I think there are gremlins afoot..

    Crafty Green Poet, Eliza, Wobbly, there are a lot of buzzards around where I live. When I'm out walking the dog, they watch us with hungry eyes, and I'm sure they fancy their chances!
