Nesting

Receding floodwaters leave the city looking scrubbed and expectant under the relentless sunlight. Madge watches the river. Perched higher than any sequoia, she factors in extraordinary wind resistance. She will show no mercy.

  10. I enjoyed that... especially "leave the city looking scrubbed and expectant"... I imagine Madge can hardly wait to leave her mark on that clean slate. :D

  12. That bird spent it's short existence leaving it's mark on the city, all for naught. Looks like ms. pigeon is going to have to pull a lot of double shifts to get back up to her quota...

  13. Quite an imagery you've created of the city and Madge's intentions! "No mercy" by her.. Love that thought of hers, although I'd steer clear of her way! :-)
