A perfect moment

Saturday morning. Off to the bakery. My eyes are still half closed and I'm tired. So I stumble downhill, buy my bread and stumble uphill again. When arriving at my back yard, I hear something rustling on the other side of the fence. At first I think it's the neighbor, but then I see them flying up to the tree behind me - three little finches chattering away.

I look around to see if someone or something has disturbed them, but they probably just got together for some kind of bird coffee klatsch. The cat behind the window staring down is no danger for them, although I wouldn't trust him if he was out here now.

Slowly I begin to wake up and see things that have changed in our little garden over the last few days. I can't remember the flowers over there. I give them a nod to greet them - and spring - in our corner of the world.

Now the sun is coming out hesitantly. It looks a little as if it's not quite awake, either. It won't be here in our yard before afternoon, but I can see it on the rooftop across the street, a single promising ray.

The finches are still in their tree, probably talking about the crazy woman looking up at them with a big smile on her face. I don't care. All is good this very moment.

What a cute story! And thanks for including my cat bead... I'm sure he really would like a finch for breakfast... not the kitty gruffies he gets offered!
