SO PINE NUT TAGGED ME WITH A MEME. An interesting one, too. I like haiku; the "six-word memoir" seems to be similar, an attempt to capture a moment in just a few words.
This meme requests that you write a six-word memoir "of your inner birder." At first I was ready to settle for something wordless yet charged with symbolism, like the clip art above, which I purchased many years ago from an outfit called ArtParts.
I still like this idea, but then I started thinking that I don't really consider myself a birder. I mostly enjoy so-called backyard birds myself. I like to feed birds; in fact, I like to feed most things. My first reaction, on seeing almost anything, is to wonder what it would like to eat. And then of course, because I wasn't looking for it, my six-word memoir popped into my head.
Which I think is how haiku and their friends are supposed to work. So here it is:
Hello there. What do you eat?
