bird watching, Birds, Nature, poèmes en français

Dés notre arrivée, le héron s’envole indigné.

And the heron flies off, indignant.

You disturbed the peace.

Nous sommes des troubleurs de paix.

Il n’y a pas d’amareyeurs par ici,

Maigre certitude, en ces temps incertains :

Il n’y en aura jamais.

I.

Once upon a time there was a girl who would only feel at peace with the world when she was on the highest roof top of her town.

Interview with my dog Tara

Animal Communication, Animals, Dogs, Interview, Tara

Tara is 14 years old.

She has been with us since Easter 2007. She has been through all the highs and lows of our family for the last 13 years. She was here when our son was born. She was here when our dog Jasmine was preparing to die. She has been a loyal and kind companion all these years.

I asked her if she would like to share her views on life with us.

Here is our conversation. I thought you may enjoy reading her…
