Decoy…

Day 5…
I’m deviating a little off the path and starting poetry month tomorrow…
My favorite bird, a Cape Dikkop was successful in distracting me a few nights ago before lockdown…

He led me away
with a defensive pose,
that startled
my tranquil walk…

Watching me closely
from his hiding place,
I felt like
I’d been stalked…

He scooted past me in the darkness,
screeching as he went by,
acting as a decoy,
I knew that I should comply…

His bravado
was clear to see,
as he flapped
his wings wildly.,
and in the misty twilight
I crept away
politely…
