God’s Best Creation (A 100 words flash)

Featured image

The blackbirds became violent and snapped at anyone who ventured the back deck.

Even the pets were not spared.

A black bird’s nest high in the Magnolia tree, was spotted.
A few days later, suddenly the black birds stopped their aggression.

We were relieved but wondered, why?

One night with no breeze, noise of leaves flickering came from the Magnolia tree.

A giant Possum was climbing down the tree. The blackbirds were forced out of their nest.

The animal world still depends on the size and strength of muscle.

Only humans, god’s best creation, rule with their head.

      • It has grown to be quite a large community and I bet you’d enjoy it. I don’t participate anymore because my focus has shifted to other things, but I still enjoy stopping in over there from time to time.
