Life is a grand parade. Just look out into your front yard. You just don’t know what will show up. Squirrels making for the tree, the chattering away once they’ve made the high branches. A passing dog running across the yard in two shakes. A neighborhood cat peering out at the streets. Birds calling from their place among the clouds. On any day, the parade can be as varied as Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. If you’re lucky, you might even get a gander at the Old Claus as he chases his reindeer across your lawn.
peacocks, blue chested,
green tail feathers dragging eyes
across the front lawn
