#3 – Look, up in the sky…

LOOK, UP IN THE SKY…

It was hard to miss,

though I did wonder

if anyone else

saw in awe

the two turkeys

up in a tree

their awkward

balancing act

on the finger-thin

branches,

the safety dance

of neck and wings

the fulcrum legs

as their resting spot

swayed

and they stayed

the night

safe from all

but my curious sight.
