Teresa’s Farm

cats are meowing

begging for their daily milk

pink tongues lap from bowls

 

dogs bark, bark, barking

prowling the premiter

always on duty

 

lazy llama spits

ears tip back; ears perk forward

speaking to his mood

 

cow and ox both moo

silhouettes in the cornfield

searching for fodder

 

maa, maaa go the goats

bouncing, jumping and playing

kids are nature’s clowns

 

cock-a-doodle-doo

dancing and calling the hens

rooster in the coop

 

quacking to their hens

shaking curly tail feathers

drakes waddle along

 

loud screaming peacock

eyes growing on tail feathers

sightless, colorful

 

deafening honking

massive wings beating through air

gander, goose, gosling

 

farmer Teresa

tending to her animals

morning, noon, and night
