A busy peahen chimes her bossy displeasure at the early hour,
scattering a skulking gang of hadedas, who plot a stolen breakfast,
from some unsuspecting suburban German Shepherd;
who in turn,
will be jolted from his sunny snooze and dreams of grey rabbits,
will bark his outrage at a haughty ginger cat.

    That was very interesting. Is Flash 55 like a weekly poetry/writing prompt? You write beautifully, by the way.

      Thank you klrs09. As far as I know, Flash 55 doesn’t have to be poetry, it’s just a challenge from mrknowitall to post something with a 55-word limit every Friday.

      I did comment Jingle, I think my comment is waiting for moderation; there is often a delay when I put a comment on a Blogspot blog.
