I love my bird bath.
It’s shallow and perfect for the birds
to take a bath which can entertain me
for longer than I care to admit.
around the bird bath open
to allow the birds to see predators
heading their way.
If I've created a space for them
I feel an obligation
to not put them at a disadvantage.
And let's face it,
they are more likely to come around
if they feel safe.
