Wild Things

I never thought of chickens as ‘existing in the wild’. Well, they apparently do. In a suburb of New York, Plainview Long Island to be exact, they have taken up residence. They live, they eat, they find shelter….and they crow at the crack of dawn! It’s causing an uproar!! I would imagine the first time anyone heard this they probably thought they were in the twilight zone! The whole story gave me a good laugh when I heard it on the car radio this morning. This brought back such pleasant memories of spending summers in the country when I was little…

feathery wild things
roaming through suburbia
feral rooster crows

poking holes in dreams before
dawn embraces rising sun
