Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #240 Guardian of the forest

Whether in a sunlit forest clearing

or hidden deep within the dank, moist shade

he will be found forever preening

a gaudy, strutting Indian brave,

proudly standing with his tail displayed,

a hundred eyes are always watching

throughout earth’s history was there ever

found in nature a sight quite matching

the splendour of each jewelled feather

unlidded eyes that will not ever

close thus allowing him sleep or rest

all the while displaying pavonine breast

the faithful guardian of the forest
