Bird of Joy


Poetry Jam's prompt this week is Celebration, and I can find no better example of it than this little fellow, who bops amazingly on the beat, and practically dances himself out of his feathers. Take a moment to celebrate the joy of being alive, along with him. He will make you smile. Then dance!

For Joy,
all there needs
to be
is music
and a
willing spirit.

  3. I cant get over how totally on the beat he is, plus the headbanging. He must watch a lot of MTV:)They are so darned smart, the little critters.
