Bird dance

The Daily Post prompt is: pleasure.

The wild dance of the sparrows,

Sends dry dust flying,

And cool leaves fluttering.

Splashing with spread wings,

They squabble in scant puddles.

Hopping beneath benches,

Around stationary feet,

They bicker over bread crumbs,

Jostling the pigeons.

In and out of rose bushes,

They play hide and seek

In search of grass seeds,

Screeching with joy.

Sparrows dance the wild summer dance,

As only creatures can,

Who live their short and furious lives

Between two snaps of winter’s jaws.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
