Wild Turkeys On The Road Near Home Poem by Max Reif

Wild Turkeys On The Road Near Home

Rating: 5.0


Tribal elders in their feathered garb
pow-wow in the middle of the road.
Bright red wattles shake
from bright blue faces

(reminding me of
rabid football fans) .

Smiling drivers stop,
though with a slight discomfort

to see something so ancient
that Johnny-come-lately, reason,
makes no sense of it at all.

This is a good description of a nice moment. We saw a herd of wild turkeys when we were in our motorhome in Williamsburg Virginia and I never forgot how picturesque they were, in among all the autumn trees. Raynette
