a peacock appears

HERE'S THE STORY SINCE THIS IS based on a true story! LOL I was in the woods 
singing...pretending I could sing opera while resting on a bench...all by myself. And what to 
my wondering eyes should appear walking around with my free range chickens? You 
guessed it! A peacock! He must have thought I was a peahen. Later, we found out he 
lived several miles away and had left home for few days...he stayed here until I left for 
Texas, which was about 3 days. He must have loved my voice! OR RUNNING THE ROOSTER! 
lol Anyway, that was the inspiration for this haiku! Would anyone have guessed? lol

    I love footles...and judged almost blind. (a few people put their names on them.) So, the honor is well deserved.

    You are very welcome, Linda-Marie. I enjoyed every entry. It was hard to select the top 10. There were several very similar entries. So....I loved them all, though!

    I'm doing fine. It was a wonderful experience...unbelievable. We tried to get photos, but from the distance they weren't that great. No open tail feathers. Definitely an uplifting moment! Thanks for stopping by to comment.
