Watching the Watchers

Watching the Watchers - PhotoBy, Nan Claire Falkner

Amy finished putting away the leftovers in the cooler while Joe put up his camera equipment. Birding was so rewarding. The seasons changed and the birds migrated spring and fall each year. How lovely to sit on the Dock and watch the ducks fly south for the winter. Waving good-bye to them, Joe snapped one last picture for his yearly portfolio.

The earth began to shake. Amy could see walking giant robots across the water getting closer every day.

The Robot General laughed as he watched the humans from his binoculars and ticked off another species. “If only they knew!”

    • Dear Anita, It is sort of “War of the Worldish” But, I think it’s just a matter of time that something like this happens. Well . . . it could! Thanks for stopping by Anita! Nan 🙂

  1. Dear Nan,

    ‘Amy could see walking giant robots across the water getting closer every day.’ This sentence has two things that are somewhat confusing. I want it to read…’giant robots walking across the water…’ Is that possible what you meant? I don’t know. Second is….’getting closer every day.’ The entire story is set in the ‘now’ yet this sentence rips us out of the now and has us twanging back and forth like a bowstring as we try to decipher what has been seen, when, and for how long.

    I mention these items because I think you will treat the questions as just that and not an unwarranted critique. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for clarification or for a warning to back off.
