My lovely friend and fellow bird lover, Linda Baie, is hosting this week at Teacher Dance! If you don’t follow her on Instagram, you should!
This week I have one of my morning poems illustrated with a photo from Wikimedia Commons — a Turkish flamingo!

Hi Keri, I love ‘flamingo becomes tree’. The picture makes me wonder how it does it, calmly standing on one leg. The patience is something we all could emulate. Thanks, and have a lovely day!
Thanks for the avian gulp this morning, Keri. Flamingos are such interesting creatures. 🙂
Is that like camouflage? I never thought of it that way! Doesn’t seem like the fish did either…
I love flamingos, with their showy colour and penchant for standing on one leg, it’s like the were designed to be turned into poetry! 🙂
Oh, to be able to bend my leg backwards like that! (NOT!!!) I agree with Linda — that balance is amazing. That is what I should aspire to!
Sneaky bird. I always wondered why they stood so still.
Oh my, that last line made me laugh! What an amazing picture and bird.
It looks rather like a large yellow pond lily, except pink. 🙂 Poor fish.
I agree with Brenda, about the fish. The poem seems so serene and inviting till the “GULP,” at the end, fun though, thanks!
Oh, I love how he becomes a tree! Now I wonder… is that the point of that stance??
