Perspective

Perspective

A Story by D Connolly
"

Life isn't so bad. It's all about perspective

"
I stalked outside, shielding my eyes from the glare of the sun. Slouching by my car, I defiantly lit a cigarette. A chilly wind tangled my hair, and I cursed the sensation, unusual for this time of year. Looking to my right, I wondered why no one bothered to clean up or drain the brown puddle. Mud was sure to be tracked inside should anyone step in it.

A bluejay hopped merrily into it, splashing and chirping.

I thought I saw him smile as we looked at each other and thought together, "Aren't you silly"?

'Perspective'
D Connelly,
a lovely blue jay does behave just as you have depicted;
'A Bluejay hopped merrily'
This is a happy thing you've got here with
in your above writing.
Seeing something which seems unwanted..
until it is viewed from another position.
Will or can good come and is it worth the final payment.
Great poem and blessings to you as always.

Thank you for reaching out with a message, becuz I haven't seen you at the cafe for a long time & I'm forgetful, so I needed a prompt to find you again! I'm trying to place your snippet here in the timeframe of when the covid mess first began, before it became part of almost everything everybody writes & thinks & interprets these days! I find bluejays to be annoying, with their loud squawking so it's easy for me to imagine the sass & defiance of your little blue agitator in this tale! Sometimes we just need to observe & document the simple aspects of life & let any possible lesson or meaning unfold as it will. I cannot look at anything anymore without thinking "covid" . . . so here I picture the puddle as being the virus & the bluejay as being the spreader! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

Well, Bluejays are known to be a bit rowdy. If I remember right, in regards to mud puddles, so are young boys. I like the fact that you've turned one small event into entertainment.
