muddy yard
wagon tracks
log    long handled axe

yesterday’s news
wrapped around the pump

four grown men
on the prowl
early coffee brewing

child crying
old dog lies    opens one eye
screeching bedlam

feathers    here    there

Happy Thanksgiving all.

The axe doesn't waste time and the feathers give a clue. Hopefully it was worth it - after all, what would thanksgiving be without one. Great turkey talk Daver.

Well, I hope that the turkey isn't tough..Thanks for stopping by, reading, and commenting on my featured poem..Yes, that rooster was a fighter and defender of his harem but he was really good boiled in the pot and served with rooster broth dumplings..Sara

Interesting pictures of different Thanksgiving images. I like how you always think outside the box. Have a great Turkey day!! Glad you liked my Pete's sweet death. I used to eat that way too (in the days I could get away with it)
