Deb lives on a farm in Colorado and wrote this beautiful little story about some time she shared with a local hawk she has since named "Phineas". "Phineas"
Phineas was flying high circling above in the sky He swooped down and caught my eye He noticed me I noticed him We were one for a moment in the sky
As I awoke Phineas was there on the railing of the deck And he did not leave And he did not leave
I went down to the barn to feed the horses and the sheep
There was Phineas perched on a post next to the barn And he did not leave And he did not leave
Bunnies were hopping just below looking for hay that I might have dropped
Phineas just looked And he did not leave And he did not leave
Water was drawn form the well right next to Phineas Even with all the activity He did not leave And he did not leave
A friend stopped by to say hello He saw Phineas eye to eye And he did not leave And he did not leave
I peaked out from between the barn doors I just could not believe Phineas was still there
Then he was off to the sky Along with writing stories and taking care of the animals on her farm, Deb also produces beautiful handmade flower fairies and houses utilizing wool from the sheep shown in the pictures above.
You can find her Fairies here.
