Perched today, a loner,
a daredevil;
Preening, on high voltage wires,
Resting wings for journeys afar,
Taming danger, clutching tightly
With destined claws assuredly

Imaginary Garden With Real Toads

CHALLENGE to submit an original poem from archived challenges of this Imaginary Garden. I chose Words Count with Mama Zen "Power Image" to be written in 25 or less words
...A power image is an image that a writer returns to time after time. It's part art, part personal mythology, and part creative shorthand. It's a thing, a sound, an angle of light; it's anything that a writer imbues with a greater meaning than it would ordinarily have and adopts as a signature symbol...
Ha!! power lines are in my power write. However it fits the challenge since i had written time and again about birds on power lines (◕‿◕。)
