A Letter Written in the Woods

Posted September 24, 2009 & filed under Notebook.

Dear Zac,

I ate a mushroom and turned into a red
cardinal. I have to live in twigs, but I like
my sanctuary. I have to dig for my own
food in rich soil and wet earth. I made
friends with a tree frog, who knows 2
secrets about me. Come pick me up in a
little bit. Don’t tell Mom. She won’t
believe you. Tell her I’ll be back
in a day or so.
