When I was young, there were two more lively and happy things than wearing new clothes and setting off firecrackers to welcome the gods during the Spring Festival. One was from the village to show movies, and the other was popcorn. They came irregularly, and the village exulted irregularly. The news that the popcorn master who carried the burden went into the village always spread like wildfire. A bag of cigarettes was not enough. From the east end of the village to the west end of the village, the greedy men, women and children, especially the dolls, carried dustpans and bamboo baskets one, holding firewood (people who love to eat sweet will bring their own saccharin, which was too expensive to eat casually at that time), they walked out of each yard and gathered at the place where the popcorn master unloaded the burden. The place where our village has made common popcorn is located in the horse circle yard, which is a relatively large field located in the center of the village. It is usually a place where adults pass away when they are idle, animals roll, and dolls kick shuttlecock and jump ropes, when there are major events, such as popcorn and movies, animals will be tied to the stakes at the edge of the cliff, leaving this place empty for people to be happy. According to the order of coming first and then coming, the bamboo baskets and dustpans filled with corn were arranged in a row one by one. Some families didn’t have the ready-made corn, so they simply brought the corn cobs together and rubbed the corn down while queuing. Maybe the popcorn master could figure out how much money he could earn from this trip by looking at a long queue like a snake, but he could not see excitement from his expression. He lit the fire in the hearth with a firewood dipped in kerosene, put the corn into the black jar and sealed it hard. He began to pull the air box in one hand and rotate the black jar in the other hand, from time to time, the dolls who looked around with their eyes and fingers, and then smiled with full knowledge and satisfaction of everything in front of them. The dry and wet firewood will directly affect the speed of popcorn if it is hard or not (in fact, the calorific value), which depends on the scale reaction of the barometer. There is no doubt that the coal block is the most entertaining one. If you throw a few pieces casually, the temperature in the jar will rise. The second is driving firewood, which is a family with strong labors going to the back mountain far away, cutting down the trees and chopping them into firewood back (carrying them), or directly buying ready-made goods from the market. My family has neither money nor Labor, so I have to use corn sticks as fuel from local materials. In this way, the popcorn master will have to extend the time of shaking the machine. However, farmers don’t care much about this, and generally there is no obvious displeasure. The popcorn machine is a bomb in my opinion. In fact, not only me, but also many adults covered their ears and even closed their eyes, hiding far away. Some children are bold and don’t walk far behind the popcorn master. They are always ready to rush up to grab the rice flowers flying outside the straps and sacks. In order to prevent more rice flowers jumping outside, each family has its own preventive measures. Some people carry sacks, and some carry straps. The carrier may have been filled with dung or firewood, but the farmers always ignore these and knock them upside down on the ground for a few times, as if all the dirty things inside would run out. Or it is also possible that, according to the criteria of the banker’s family, things like firewood and dirt are not dirty originally. Even so, bang! After a loud noise, the vast majority of grinning rice flowers will be gathered in, but there will always be a small number of people scrambling to get out of the loopholes. At this time, the onlookers who were waiting for them were grinning with bigger mouths, pushing and pushing up. The naughty kid grabbed a handful of popcorn master’s arm and put it into his mouth, while the clever one picked up the ground silently, he ate happily even though he didn’t care to clean the soil on it. It was Rice flowers that lit the children’s happiness, and the children lit the air again. Happiness was like water waves spreading around. These years have passed, and many things are constantly changing with the times. They are either changed or technologically innovated. Occasionally I saw the popcorn machine under the corner of the street, which was still an old and unmoved style. Some doubts, did all this stay in our time? However, I often watched them nap in the corner of the wall, which was far less than the bustle we had at that time. Times are changing and lifestyles are changing. However, there are always people guarding one kind of life or another. It is this kind of lonely defense itself that makes us return to the past time occasionally to live in warm and visit ourselves in front of the unrecognized life. Of course, some memories are unique to a certain era, so is happiness.

另一只鸟的故事. 看着眼前丰盈的食物,五颜六色馋人嘴的茶资, 砰 醒堂木敲出一声清脆响声,八哥鸟语气欢愉的,今天我再讲一段我的传奇故事给你们听。八哥鸟用喙慢条斯理梳理着翅膀的羽毛,睨了一眼眼前的众鸟,用喙轻咬着脚踝上一个白色的脚箍,抬起头,羽毛在中午阳光的反照下闪着阵阵油光。八哥鸟对站在桕树上羽毛也是黑白相间的瓦铃啷鸟道:你之前不是问我,我脚踝上这个白色的脚箍是怎么回事?我现在告诉你。八哥鸟指着在田间劳作的人群道:呐,我脚上这个白色的脚箍就是这种动物给我箍上去的,他们自称自己为人类。 给我箍上这个白色脚箍的是一个三十几岁的男人,长得还算清秀,只是走起路来,他走路的姿势有别于旁人,好像随时要跌翻地上似的,他的身体缺少了一份柔韧多了一份僵硬,他走路的姿势着实是很别扭,却喜欢行走,常常撇下我独自去闲逛。偶尔倚门独自远望,不知他心中思想什么鬼东西,身孤的影子迷茫的眼神,可这个家伙从不在我面前吐露心事,常常独自对着远方出神。 八哥鸟咽下一颗熟透的牛筋籽,道:看到他落寞的神情,我飞到他的肩膀上低鸣轻唱,我本想给他逗闷,可这个坏家伙少领我的情,把我从他的肩膀上赶下来,恶死的吼,滚开,滚开,自个玩去。哼哼。八哥鸟忿忿的道:竟敢吼我,我故意在他的耳沿上咬上一口,为有此,他才会恢复往日的快乐。 我们常常玩耍在夕阳西下的黄昏,他唤我时吹一声长长的口哨,我对他是亦步亦趋,紧跟他的脚步,或前或后,像呆瓜似的,那一刻我竟忘记了自己原来还会飞翔,累了时我就站在他的脚盘上,常常我们是这样子闲逛. 在野外生存的方法,有些方法还是他教识我的呢.正如我脚踝上的这个白色脚箍,可不是为了美丽而给我戴上的装饰品,他是为我的安全考虑才给我戴上这个白色的脚箍的,有了这个脚箍我就像有了一张身份证,可与人类共享空间的证明,我的生命在他们的地盘上有了保证,我可以肆无忌惮的飞翔其中,嘴馋时还能得到一点意想不到的点心.对了,我问你们,你们有谁吃食过海鲜? 群鸟听问,摇头无语,大山雀的表情似山老古没看过马蹄印,稀奇的问道:何为海鲜?八哥鸟神气的道:那些人说是扇贝,看他们的馋相,我吃来味道也不咋的.不如熟透的牛筋籽好吃. 望着眼前群鸟资以的丰盛茶资,五颜六色的野果子,八哥鸟道:想想,还真是怀念和坏家伙一起吃西瓜的情景. 昨天,我和你远远看见一个人走路怪怪的,就是我说的坏家伙.八哥鸟对站在身旁长得漂亮的雌八哥鸟道. 哈,真有点怀念与那个坏家伙戏耍夕阳西下的时光,我们戏耍的情形羡煞了几多眼睛,记得有人对他劝说过,说给我过多的自由,有一天我会远飞他乡不再回来.劝他要把我关进笼子里,坏家伙不听他的,还说:笼子之外还是一个笼子,关与不关有什么区别呢? 可你还是离开了他.雌八哥说. 八哥鸟温柔的看着站在身边漂亮的雌八哥鸟,甜蜜的道:人类有句成语叫乐不思蜀. 八哥鸟望着侣伴双飞的天鹅,对雌八哥道:我再教你一句成语.指着比翼远飞的天鹅的身影,人类对这种爱情经常形容说的一句成语叫"比翼双飞",意思是说生死不离对爱情忠贞坚守. 望着四散去的群鸟,八哥鸟道:天下无不散的筵席.我们也走吧. 雌八哥鸟道:这句话是什么意思?八哥鸟道:我以后再解释给你听...... 一 中午时分,一个读小学六年级的小男孩找到我,对我道:叔,送你只小鸟,我爸爸说你有个空鸟笼.这只鸟叫什么名字?小男孩问我. 我接过小鸟,端详之后道:红屁股子.又叫高髻凤子.我问小男孩道:你怎样得到这只小鸟的? 小男孩笑着道:我放学回来就看到这只小鸟蹲在我家的厅堂里,我本想自己养,我爸爸说我还在读书,容易分了心,他叫我送来给你,说前不久你养的八哥鸟飞走了,有一个空鸟笼. 作别小男孩. 我把这只雏高髻凤子放在我摊开的掌心上,静等好一会儿,它只蹲伏在我的手掌中,头左右晃动四下打量陌生的环境,胆怯的只是蹲伏在我的手掌心,不愿飞去,不敢飞去.它的反应比我的想象相差甚远,我原本猜想,等恢复神定它自会飞去.从外貌看,羽毛虽未长全,它亦可飞翔.事实却并非如此,这是一只未学会飞翔的雏鸟.这是一只调皮的鸟儿,莽撞的鸟儿,它好奇着巢外的世界,探头探脑之际,外面五颜六色精彩的世界,对未知的向往忘乎所以爬出巢沿仍未知,它钟情如何事呢?是一只打眼前飞过的昆虫?浑然忘我在险境,一个倒栽葱慌乱之下张开双翅,它不是以飞的姿势,它是以滑翔的姿势无法控制的滑落在人类居住的厅堂.莽撞的行为从此改变它的一生. 轻轻的我对雏鸟吹一口气,轻柔的气浪撞击它的身体本能反应,它把身体向下压瓷实的伏在我的手掌中,发出惶恐的唧唧的鸣声,小心的把它放入笼中,放入食物我把笼中的水盘注满水,挂在晾衣服的衣架上. 鸟儿竟然不会自食.又是我料想不及的. 风,这是只什么鸟? 高髻凤子. 如何得来的? 一个小孩送的. 谁? 辉的儿子. 此鸟啼鸣好听吗? 不知道. 它吃什么食物的? 它是吃食物的. 真是小人讲话,我是说此种鸟吃什么样的食物? 不知道. 一问三不知的,你为何养,不如把它放了. 是没意思的.我翻起白眼道:你知道巢穴在哪就送回去. 军被我噎的,走到我面前不说话,直勾勾盯着我看,然后道:人无知真的是无药可救,你以为你长得真是够好样子,我吃饱了撑的.末了,加一句道:你以为你是西施?就算是西施我也不照你. 我是西施不成了人妖.滚滚滚,你家缺水吗?来到我这儿总是撬茶撬水,水鬼投胎似的. 好叻,我家的井水比你家的甜,你以为我喜欢来你这儿喝水,我是担心你的水放久了变成潲水,这样做是犯法的知道不,没看新闻?现在提倡节约能源,哼哼,水资源紧张就是你这种人造成的,要不是我隔三差五来帮你消灭点儿水,保不定有一天把你拉去枪毙. 军的大论听入我耳心为之惊惊,我唯有陪着笑讨好他道:喝红茶还是铁观音? 军大马金刀坐在椅子上道:最近肚里缺油水,喝红茶. 我把刚拿出的铁观音茶放回去,拿来红茶边泡茶、头摇如拨浪鼓道:没有家庭温暖的人就是这种德性. 吝啬茶叶你明说,我不要你这一小杯茶水. 听到军这样说,我满心欢喜道:谢谢体谅,我自己喝、、、、、、 话未说完,军道:给我来个大茶碗. 军突转的口风,他的语气差一点儿把我撞翻在地上.我苦笑着道:交友不慎就应该是这种下场!怪自己,怎么能认识了这样的白眼狼. 军不理我的抱怨,夸张的砸巴着嘴,见牙不见眼笑着道:香,真香,没开水了,快去烧壶开水来. 我刚站起身,沗在门口喊我:风,你养的这只鸟是高髻凤子?还未学会自食?刚才,远远的我看到有两只老鸟好像来给这只雏鸟喂食. 我应答沗道:是好像不会自食,辉的儿子刚送来的,不会吧,有这样的奇事,有老鸟来给它喂食? 刚才我看到有两只老鸟拍动翅膀用爪子抓住笼侧边,样子像是给这只雏鸟喂食.沗又道:错不了,刚才的两只老鸟真的是来给这只雏鸟喂食的,你出来看看,这只雏鸟的喙上还有残留下来的食物. 果不其然,雏鸟的喙上残留有像糠渣的食物.我道:这两只老鸟的行为真个稀奇,保不定是这只雏鸟的父母? 沗道:看情景应该是这只雏鸟的父母. 军对这一奇怪之事啧啧称奇. 充满想象的发现,我对高髻凤子的鸟性平添增起无限的好奇. 之后,我留了一个心眼儿. 从外形看,这两只老高髻凤子是神俊漂亮,前额至头顶羽色默黑油亮,头顶束起高高的羽髻,眼下方有一深红色羽簇,形成一红斑;耳羽和颊白色,紧连于红斑的下方,颈、背、尾上覆羽是棕褐色,好一只姣鸟。 老高髻凤子来到时有个特点,这对老高髻凤子到来时每每发出阵阵高亢婉转的啼叫.听到这对老高髻凤子的啼叫,我有意的躲在远远的一旁,留意这两只老高髻凤子的举动.老高髻凤子站在离鸟笼约五米远的电杆线上,发出阵阵啼叫,同时观察着鸟笼里雏鸟的反应,看到雏鸟的反应迟钝,两只老高髻凤子索性飞临鸟笼上空,啼叫着盘旋着,盘旋着啼叫着,至雏鸟对他们的呼唤作出反应,倚笼边鸣啼,张开喙乞求着食物,两只老高髻凤子好像对雏鸟作出的反应比较满意,双飞离而去. 一会儿,一小会的功夫,两只老高髻凤子衔来食物,从食物的的形状看来,是农人喂鸡的食物.两只老高髻凤子透过笼的缝隙给笼里的雏鸟喂食,看到这个情形,对高髻凤子爱犊的鸟性,我的心中腾起一股异样的感觉,于心有点不忍去隔离开它们. 我猜测着想,还有什么样的鸟有如此不抛不弃的爱呢? 一天的时光两只老高髻凤子要来喂食五六次.就是在雨天,它们也是站在电杆线上不愿离去,于雨中长啼.高髻凤子爱幼的母性父性,感动了我,迫使我提回鸟笼到房间.两只老高髻凤子看不到雏鸟悲啼离去. 看到两只老高髻凤子飞离雨中,我去到鸟笼前,打开笼门,逗引起雏鸟来.雏鸟还未长全父母的容貌,黑白相间的头,却未见其间的红斑,浅棕色的羽毛,身体小巧依人,伏在我的掌心上啁啾鸣叫.再喂给它一点食物,放回笼中,雏鸟闭着眼睛似是睡去了.翌日,放晴的天气,阳光饱满白云稀薄,上午十点左右,我提鸟笼到一处矮树旁,打开鸟笼门,离开远站,静等两只老高髻凤子的到来,让它们领自己的孩儿回去. 不一会儿,两只老高髻凤子衔着食物飞来,万般逗引下,雏鸟才慢腾腾的走出笼门,两只老高髻凤子欢鸣着,老鸟千万般的呼喊下,雏鸟迟疑着笨拙的拍动翅膀,胆怯的爬上笼门前一枝小树枝上,树枝离笼门是我算计好了的距离,方便雏鸟爬上去. 我静静等待,目送雏鸟跟随父母回到属于它们的世界. 三十分钟,一刻钟,雏鸟却紧紧抓着树枝,不愿跟随父母回去.穷它父母千万般儿的呼唤,雏鸟只是紧紧抓住树枝,不愿挪动一下身体.两只老高髻凤子甚是无奈,其间它们半途飞去,给这只雏鸟衔来食物. 雏鸟发出阵阵焦急的鸣叫,看到这个情景,我知道雏鸟不是不想离去,而是它还未学会飞翔.我捉起雏鸟放回笼中,此后,我与两只老高髻凤子共喂这只雏鸟.期间,我和两只老高髻凤子照面最短的距离只有一笼之隔,当然这样短距离接触是我有意为之潜伏所起的杰作. 雏鸟学会自食是十天之后,之后的一天,两只老高髻凤再也没来给这只雏鸟喂食.起初,三五天它们会飞回来看一眼关在笼中的孩儿,十天半月之后,难再见它们的影踪. 二 雏鸟长大俨然是只成鸟,头顶耸起的的黑色羽冠,黑白分明的脸颊,却少了眼下方红色的羽簇.奇怪之余,每天心切的检查它眼下方看有无红色的羽簇生出,这种特征却从未出现.急切迷惑之余,我想,也许这种特征是要在它性成熟才会长出. 雏鸟长成大鸟的高髻凤子,不怕人,在我细若可闻的口哨声的唤叫下,高髻凤子张开喙,闪动舌头依附我手边发出啾啾的鸣叫.样子温顺可爱.高耸的羽冠贴下去,站在我手上发出啾啾的细鸣声.如此模样,看它欢喜的样子,我联想起,长离家中,在某一刻回家时,还未到家门口,自家眼明耳聪养的土狗,闪电般的跑来迎接自己,扑在身上贴耳磨蹭亲热的吠叫. 高髻凤子的动作与认主人的土狗极其相似呢. 第一次放飞高髻凤子,它不是飞翔蓝天上,一头的钻进一丛矮而浓密的草丛里,胆怯的藏身其里不敢出来.恢复神定也是躲在草丛中啁啾的回应我的呼唤.放回笼中,熟悉的环境下,高髻凤子稍作作息,神气的在笼中的枝棍间左腾右跃,偶尔发出阵阵婉约的啼鸣. 第二次放飞时我高高抛起高髻凤子,抛起天空的高髻凤子张翅飞翔,作一个漂亮优雅的弧线,飞落在我脚下.此鸟胆怯还是无法适应笼子外陌生的环境. 第三次我打开鸟笼门,把鸟笼挂在可移动晾衣服的衣架上,好让高髻凤子对陌生的环境有一个适应的过程,我不再理它,约半刻钟,高髻凤子发出一串长啼,展翅飞起.可惜它不是飞向蔚蓝的长空,却是飞进我的房间落在台上,迅速的躲在水暧筒的背后.我把它捉起放在台面上,它抬起头可怜巴巴的瞅着我.可怜的小样,如此依人,我想,何妨长久喂养的伴我身旁. 一个月后,再次放飞高髻凤子,它不像前几次害怕笼外面的环境,胆敢孤身在一片空地自玩,我站在远处静静的看它玩耍.打自鸟笼飞落地上,高髻凤子只是跳跃地面上,从远处跳跃到我的脚边,在我脚边转悠一会儿,跳跃着走向远处,说远,也就是五六米的距离.有些时,高髻凤子也侧着头望向空旷的天空,期间我没能看到它展翅飞翔. 以下发生的事情裂人的天意作弄,我走进房间,茶还未喝完一杯,刚喝上两口,高髻凤子发出凄惨的悲啼.我赶出时,看到一只黑色的大猫追着高髻凤子抓咬,地上羽毛片片狼藉,险恶的境况,我大声吓退作恶的黑猫.猫退,高髻凤子匍伏在地上,我担心它的伤势严重,刚走近,高髻凤子扑楞楞出尽全身力气靠近我.检查完它的伤,除肚下方一道伤口,有一只翅膀被猫咬断,伤口处血肉模糊,看它受伤的严重性,我不知能否救活它.对伤口我仔细处理完,把它放进鸟笼,高髻凤子无力站稳笼里的枝棍上,我把它放在笼底. 我放一杯水在它面前,拿来食物,我把食物递到它面前,高髻凤子还能张喙自食,我悬起的心稍作放下.担心它的伤势,半刻钟我观察一次,渐渐的高髻凤子的精神越来越差,常常是闭着眼睛,状似昏迷. 生命常于意外面前嘎然而止,奇迹往往发生在常识之外.佛语精偈:一花一世界,一叶一传奇.诠释的也许就是生命的深度. 2013.10.21
