a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

The Feather...


lay where it had landed. 
The chicken was gone.
The hawk screamed in triumph
as he soared
not as high as he was before
now he carried dinner.

I hope not! I've been there, but ours was a pile of feathers, and blood.

You can't even leave a poor chicken out nowadays.

What's become of the neighborhood? I'm just glad it wasn't the dog.

I assume you saw this tragedy happen. How sad. Although, it IS true - the circle of life, feeding chain, etc. That must have been a sight to see - the hawk flying with a chicken in it's talons! I once saw a bald eagle flying with a long snake hanging from IT'S talons, WHILE we were driving on the highway! LOL!
