Taking Five

#Relaxation #Elephant #Watering hole

Pampering after a long day in the

african sunshine

catching rainbows in their

homemade bubbles

younger members of the family

directing streams of water towards

either mum or dad

reaction – a rockabye in either trunk while in

muddier spots – hippo’s are happy in their holes

Pink Flamingo

#coloryourworld #cyw #pinkflamingo

long legged bird

wading in water

feet unseen

 

across America and Africa

you settle with your siblings

wonderous waterfowl

 

balanced like ballerinas

up on one leg

hidden in feathers – the other peg

 

paired in twos – for life (the news)

settled together in a homely nest

as mum and dad to two chicks – the best

 

and by the great big watering hole

pairs form groups – safety their goal

up in the sky – during flight – and at night
