We were sitting at an outside table in a cafe in the park. The sun had made an appearance after a monsoon week and we had arranged to meet, a friend and I, for a long-planned walk. There were two rooks eyeing up our raspberry scones from their perch on top of the ornamental gate beyond our table.
Another bird on the ledge of the tall pillar was frantically shredding a napkin, searching the ribboned tissue for crumbs. At other tables talkative, efficient young mothers stirred their chai teas or spooned froth from foamy coffees into their busy mouths. One of the rooks, or maybe they were crows, swooped down and swiped a crust from a just-vacated table.
I looked across at the rook, perched now on the back of a red chair. It looked straight back at me, head cocked, eyes steely-blue. Its arachnid-like talons were a varnished black. It clung to its position on the chair back until we stood and abandoned our table. I turned to watch it dart over and poke around our plates for spoils. We walked then through the withered rose garden, where the names of the buds, clearly legible, were displayed on plaques on the drying earth. It sounds like a nightclub in Fuengirola. Chop it down and it keeps coming back.
I have no confidence in myself. I know I sound like a cliche. Everything feels so silent. We walked past a bed of slumbering Ingrid Bergmans and then another of dormant Lili Marlenes. We walked. Under our feet, the springtime earth rang with the whisper of renewal. Upbeat personality helped her build network of colleagues and friends across the world.
