Pink Flamingo by Linda Imbler

 

Pink flamingo,
stretches her long neck skyward.
Soft touch,
feathery.
Flame colored,
calls are uttered.
In places of captivity, their wings are clipped.
Chicks that do not stay inside their creches
could be vulnerable to predators.
But they really are miraculous birds,
and very capable flyers.
Pink flamingo,
well fed,
ingesting much,
vibrantly colored,
flies so high.
