Sitting quietly in the car at the park
taking in the view below
knowing that tranquility came be long-lived or momentary

then an avalanche of feathers tumbled out of the sky

landing ever so neatly
on the pavement beside our neighbour's car
the onslaught continued
with grace and beauty
with movement so fast
so precise
that the myriad of birds all sorts
seemed to know exactly what to do
only permitted to feed within a few minutes
almost discussing who's to drop in next
to alight upon this vehicle to receive treats
and delight all onlookers who luckily had their camera phones ready
I reckon this happens daily
with the amount of birds spilling out of the heavens.

I can only say it had me intrigued!
Don't know about Jim though!?!
