Description

EVER SINCE I CAN REMEMBER FIRST PEARING OVER THE TOP OF MY NEST I REMEMBER SEEING THIS HUGE EYE STARING AT ME. EVERY FEW DAYS I WOULD WAKE UP TO MY MOTHERS CALLS AND SEE IT. JUST STARING, BUT NOW AND THEN IT WOULD GESTURE AT US AND MAKE AN AWFULL SKREECH THAT SOUNDED SOMETHING LIKE ME BUT DIFFERENT. ALL SPRING I ALONG WITH MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS GREW BIGGER AND STRONGER. I LONGED TO LEAVE THIS SMALL SPACE AND FLY WITH MY MOM AND DAD BUT I COULDNT. I TRIED BUT MY WINGS WERE JUST NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO LIFT ME. WAITING, WAITING ALWAYS WAITING. EARLY ONE MORNING I WOKE UP TO THAT FUNNY SKREACH AND SAW THAT BIG EYE STARING AT ME, GESTURING AS I HAD SEEN SO MANY TIMES. MOM BROUGHT ME BREAKFAST AND I MOVED CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE OUTER EDGE OF MY SAFE PLACE. THE WIND HAD SHIFTED AND SO HAD MY FEAR. I THOUGHT, "THIS IS MY TIME". TODAY IS THE DAY I DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I SAW A SMALL TREE CLOSE TO THE BIG EYE. CAN I MAKE IT THERE I WONDERED? I LIFTED MY WINGS AND TOOK THE LEAP OF FAITH. I MADE IT TO THE LITTLE TREE. THERE WAS A HUMAN BEHIND THE BIG EYE AND HE HAD TWO. WE SPENT SOME TIME SKREECHING TO EACH OTHER BUT I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND A WORD HE WAS SAYING. WHAT IS THAT? OH MOM IS CALLING ME BACK, SEE YA LATER. TO THIS DAY WHEN I HEAR THE REDTAILS SKREECH I LOOK UP, WAVE AND ATTEMTP MY REDTAIL SKREECH. MOST OF THE TIME THEY WILL GLIDE DOWN JUST OVERHEAD, CIRCLE AND SKREACH AND I KNOW I HAVE A BOND WITH THEM, AND I THINK TO MYSELF, WHAT A GLORIOUS DAY GOD HAS MADE.
