Photo Challenge: One day

One day

The squawking chick will  grow

To be a carbon copy of its mother

Speckled hen crossing the dry grass.

One day its feathers will be more

Beautiful and consistent with

What a hen is supposed to be,

And it will grow a red comb or wattle

On its head, and its beady eye

Will know what to look for to eat.

But for now it will stick

Close to its mother for comfort

And protection and to learn

How to behave

When it is grown.
