Wesley & Porocko

A Sunwash

Upon an old, crackly-looking, yet sturdy branch sat a wise ‘ol owl named Wesley. Wesley spent his time watching the activities of all his forest friends with his big googly eyes. He also enjoyed eating little rabbits and mice now and then.
His best friend’s name was a flashy, young peacock named Porocko. Porocko enjoyed strutting the forest in all his embellished glory every day of the week because he did not think it so important to feel spectacular, but to look spectacular. Wesley could not understand his best friend who always lived life like a play.
WESLEY: “Why, that crazy bird acts as though he’s just stepped out of a theater production! He flaunts himself every day and I never understood it, but it sure is fun to watch him!”
Now Porocko knew exactly how Wesley thought him extravagant, but Porocko did not know any other lifestyle.
POROCKO: “I am proud! I walk tall! I talk tall and I make the forest lively and exciting with every hue of blue and green anyone has ever seen!”
WESLEY: “Well, I’m an owl and I just can’t look like you no matter how hard I try. For I am a hunter and the only way I can manage to get my food is id I blend in with my surroundings. You, however Porocko, are a peacock. I admire you for showing off so proudly, but that is not me. Due to our preferences; mine for food, yours; for protection, and courting, we are only alike in one respect.”
POROCKO: “What’s that?”
WESLEY: “Well, we are both birds.”
POROCKO: “Wesley, you are not only cunning to catch prey, but you are also wise!”
WESLEY: “Just keep strutting your stuff, my peacock friend. We are different, that is for sure. You are alluring and grandeur – and I the capture, I will lure. I am hiding in a tree, you with pompous make them flee.”
POROCKO: “Let’s continue then, and I’ll see you in the forest once again! And with that, the two friends parted.

Love has been so much more powerful than other people's control. I think it's all love, but sometimes it doesn't feel like love. That is because so many people are defensive, protective, and do not care to trust in that four letter word...love!
