My Costas, Hendrix

by Valerie
(Las Vegas, NV)

Everyday for 6 months I would walk outside and see my Hendrix, my beautiful Costas. Three days ago I noticed he was getting a bald spot on his back. Maybe Molting? On a rainy day we had, I notice him on the ground on his back! Yet he wanted to get up to fly. Strong as he could be. I see him again down on the ground. I gave him some nectar, looked him in his eyes as I cried and told him I love him. He flew up to a tree. Held on until he could hold no more and he fell. Not to get back up. I lost my baby. That night I saw another Costas sitting on my balcony. Looking at me as if he's never been gone. I can smile again.
