The Rooster

Feb 23, 2018

The song of a soul is a funny thing.
The rooster up the road crows
fifty times a day,
it sounds exactly the same every time.
He is as happy to tell us
that the sun is up at 3 am
when it is still dark,
or at noon when it is raining.
He never seems embarrassed
about it, like, “Maybe I already told them”
or “Maybe I’m too loud” He never
starts and stops mid-crow
as if he lost his mojo.
He was born with that song in his heart
and he gives it his all every time.

Kim lives in Maine, which is lovely, and where she continues her enthusiastic relationship with Art, Music, Nature, Books, Animals, Humor and Trees.
