turkey moment

all creatures great and small
the Lord God made them all

just some are more appealing than others,
to my eyes in any case ...

and yet
I marvel at this huge bird

his colors
the pattern of his feathers
his persistence
the way he tucks a foot up
one at a time
way up into his belly feathers
and yet maintains perfect balance
on one leg

anyone can have a guard dog
we seem to have adopted a guard turkey

he stands silent
sentinal like
by the deck door

I love the kids reaction

Andrew: catch him, skin him and cook him up
Jacob: keep him as a pet so I can play with him
James: it is just not right to catch any wild animal .....

has been a fun time ....
