"Good morning," peeped the yellow bird. "I'm hungry!" wailed the black bird.
A brown feathered Squirrel Cuckoo flew over the top of a Gold tree. One of the tree's branches bounced softly as the cuckoo landed in a patchwork of yellow flowers. Slowly a golden petal drifted to the ground.
This is the unedited, first chapter of my own personal Fiction Project. The first of 7 short and sweet stories about animals that fly or crawl, "Over the top" in Costa Rica. Over the top is my assigned theme. By the end of May the stories will be part of my Art House Co-Op journal. http://arthousecoop.com/users/sharonrwagner
