Pic and a Word Challenge #167: Ruckus in the still of the morning

Mexi Movie the Third (closed)

The photo above is exactly as it was taken, in the name of all that doesn’t need any changes. The gallery below has more of such creatures, some more surprising than others.

But first, a poem of how it used to be three days ago in Rome.

Ruckus in the still of the morning

Holiday morning.
As still as Italy gets.

Blueness,
skyness,
greenness,
stillness.

Pine.
Crane.
Gulls.
Parrots.

Parrots?
One,
two,
three.

They might look
serene,
quiet
and still up there

but imagine the ruckus
they made
that made me look up
in the first place.

Before we look at the photo evidence, I wish to thank Patrick for his challenge prompts that have provided a much needed spur into motion, or if you prefer, kick in the butt. See you next year on my new blog, Patrick and everybody!
