"Hawks migrate you know? & force of wind can be a large & pesky variable, little brother. Sometimes the things you believe will propel you into the right direction ---- actually end up pushing you off course. Sometimes the invisible... will pull you elsewhere, regardless of wherever it was ...you.. had in mind.
The invisible.... can be reckless, unforgiving, ..uncaring; however, Lady Luck has always smiled for me. I've always been devil-may-care, as it has always felt right to be so. That is.. to play the role of the wildcard, & to be given a supernatural sort of sight, which has led me through the Piano Key Seas....
Come to think of it... That was my mistake: failing to avoid large bodies of water. Those gusts out there.... in the middle of all the waves. I should have flown 'round the coastline, instead. Those **** gales...!"
He pauses & adjust his silver spectacles: They look as if they come from somewhere far away or were crafted in a time long before his day or age.
"But I navigated a way... I listened. I truly listened & ...Voila!
Here-I-am: The Hawk, the Wildcard, the Raptor ..the Rock & Rolla...."
So fear not-for the Garden, or for anything, little brother. Fate
has brought me back ..to be the one who saves this place before
you come-to out of dreams & sleep.... to do all of what I do, now,
all over again.."
He then proceeds to take the city by its metaphorical hand & wrist,
& pull the drowning-ship--of-a-nation -- incl. his sleeping brother --
up from the waking grip of the Hollow. He had tacked the wind
ten-thousand times ..& then some; he would now tug o' war
Unfinished. A sort of intro to a prelude to these hummingbird chronicles I have going on. I was reading up on hawks as well & have read multiple times of how they will protect hummingbirds by killing off predators that prey on hummingbirds, as well as by not eating or harming them, themselves; even though they theoretically it can as far as the food chain goes. They allow them to live in a sense.
This piece is unfinished, but inspired. Working title & everything.
Thank you all. All my love.
Also, for clarification: This is a scene in a prequel I suppose you can call it. It is still all abstract to even myself, but I will word it plainly as to make it easy to understand. Please forgive the lack of polishing:
There is a city named Garden in later stories. It is protected by a few heroes. Here, it is being saved by this hawk-hero BEFORE any of those few heroes have taken up a name or anything yet. One of those heroes, is this hawk-guys younger brother who is in a state of 'torpor,' asleep. I am not sure what I am going to do with this hero yet. I may have his story go untold, at least within 'his world' thereby conveying how some heroes are 'comically doomed' in a sense to do all of the work, & receive not one shred of credit for it. We shall see. Apologies for the repost and all this explaining. Will sort all of this out one day when I have the time. I do promise that.
Working title for now.
