#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
