Dancing for his Breakfast


The pheasant comes every morning 
and ruffles his feathers


Digs for seeds 
on snowy ground covered in bits and pieces blown from trees
in the windy days we are having


He struts about


and when he's had his fill
he saunters off back to the woods.


Meanwhile a mourning dove watches
from a tree's protective arbour.

  3. Looks like the pheasant is both having his breakfast and getting his morning exercise!
