“For every minute you remain angry,
you give up sixty seconds
of peace of mind.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
blinded by temper
ability to laugh gone
better to calm down

These birds do generally have a disagreeable look to them, but their elegant jewel tone feathers seem to make up for it in breeding season! I love the haiku with the post!
