The Dog and the Swan – KL Caley.

The meeting of eyes
Lines drawn in the sand.
Quickly the hackles rise
This scenario was unplanned.

Stock still turned to stone
Silent warnings exchanged
Freeze, that neck can break bone.
Show no fear, best keep out of range.

Ben, Ben come to me, hear
Human, alert you can’t trust them.
Oh! Safety my two legs is near.
Yes indeed time for me to fly.

KL Caley at Novel Ideas has offered to take on Sue Vincent’s #writephoto weekly challenge now Sue has moved on to a higher plain.
