Green Turkey

Traipsing down the path between our house and Grandma and Grampa’s

we think we see a turkey,

my children and I

then a flash of green in the sunlit yard

next to the big red barn

surprise us

and this silly looking turkey

we find…

is deep emerald green

with a long, long tail

of multi-hued eyes…

a peacock!!!

In the yard?

What a surprise,

someones escaped pet

gives us a moment of

the exotic

as we follow it thru the tall grass

to the gravel road

and it disappears in the woods.

Not everyday you see that

but it gives us joy to see

some strange creation

of God in this ordinary place.

Joy finds us again.
