A Beautiful Flight Excerpt:

It was a calm morning. The sun’s light was softened by the blanket of clouds covering the sky. Dew drops speckled the bright green grass, the petals of the white and yellow daisies, and the trees. With a yawn, Hazen Hawk opened his eyes and looked around the branches of the great oak tree in which he had slept so peacefully the night before.


Hazen stretched his wings out, gently brushing the leaves of the tree.


Water droplets fell off the leaves and onto a squirrel sitting below. The squirrel shook his tail, trying to stay dry, and looked up at Hazen, slightly annoyed.


“Uh…Hazen!” called the squirrel! “Excuse me, but…you got water all over me!”


“Oh no, I’m sorry!” replied Hazen, apologetically. “I didn’t mean to! I guess there’s a lot of dew on the trees this morning! My feathers are pretty wet, too. Sorry about that!”


“It’s okay,” said the squirrel with a smile. “I’ll dry off – it’s supposed to get warm out today! Have a nice day flying!”
