Screaming 160

They argued and fought.
Screaming at the top of their lungs.
Steam rising from their exhaled words.
This was not just ruffled feathers.
They were crows in heat.

Good one. I watched a couple of crows chase each other around a billboard today. They fit this exactly.

Mine is here.

Sort of like my wife when she gets all bent out of shape over something.

Elisabeth said...

Impressive open beak and ruffled feathers, mid conversation or brawl - crows in heat, indeed.

Thank you all so much for taking on the Sunday 160 challenge. I started it almost a year ago and never expected it to take off. It has been a joyful experience to watch it grow and read all of you talented writers. I will probably celebrate its anniversary later this month.

Caty said...
