Intermission ASC 0040 16X20UF CA O

ScrollPausing to graze on a warm afternoon

Beneath a leafy canopy near the lagoon

They linger while looking upon the scene

And what they observe seems oh so serene

 Symbol 05 single x small gray

Intermission over, they go on their way

Much distance to cover before end of day

The distance they travel they don’t comprehend

Yet ultimately arrive at their journey’s end ©

Sudden Flight

Sudden Flight ASC 0041 12X16UF CA O

lavendar underline 3

Flushed from safety in the morning light

A startled pheasant took to flight

An unexpected noise, the cause

His wary nature gave no pause

Symbol 05 single x small gray

Better safe than sorry as the saying goes

Self-preservation, a crucial skill he chose

From years of staying ahead of danger

Avoiding conflict with any stranger

Symbol 05 single x small gray

A charming life was his to partake

Colorful plumage he couldn’t forsake

Guarding his harem, defending his home

His destiny sealed before he was born ©
