Hawk-Writer

              

Hello, Monday!

This Sharp-shinned Hawk stopped by yesterday,
and watched as I photographed it from my deck.

“A serious writer is not to be confounded with a solemn writer.
A serious writer may be a hawk or a buzzard or even a popinjay,
but a solemn writer is always a bloody owl.”

Apologies to Barb ( ), but I’ll strive for hawk-writer this week.

  1. Whoo you calling “bloody,” Hem?

    That’s cool. Hawks take the day shift; most owls are nocturnal. I can’t write anything creative in the morning anyway. Shhh; don’t tell my former bosses.

    (I think I feel a blog post coming on…)

      Then this little arrangements works out perfectly, huh? I’lve got the day shift and you’re covering the night.

      (I’m not a huge Hemingway fan but the quote felt apt).

    • I’m glad you like my pictures because I really love sharing them.

      I’m doing 500 words per day, and it’s going really well. I can stay on the beam that way and not go off on tangents that get me all mixed up. Hope you’re finding your way back to that one word at a time, too.

    • The hawk didn’t make me nervous but I was concerned I’d scare it away. I usually shoot from inside the house but the branches blocked my shot so I went outside.
