Bird Bathing

Diving violently into the stream

You thrash your head and body

Water flies off, rising and falling

You come up, shaking yourself

Without a towel

Just sunshine and open air

Then you plunge again

Until the dirt is off

And the bugs disappear

You gently dance to the shore

And watch the others swirl about
