The Photo Challenge this week is ‘Broken’…and cannot be repaired.
I came upon this little broken bird on a track where our dog Alfie likes to walk among the tall grasses by the river. When we came upon this little broken bird Alfie was mesmerised. He sniffed it carefully and wandered around it then stood and stared as if trying to understand.
I think Alfie knew it was a bird but he couldn’t understand why it wasn’t behaving in the expected way. It was different somehow…broken
Alfie looked at the broken bird and looked at me. I shrugged my shoulders and he turned and walked away. If it was a slug or chewing gum he’d have tried to eat it.
He perhaps knew this little bird was broken and couldn’t be repaired.
I hope the little bird knew bright sunny days and the sweet chorus of birdsong…
