Standing about, I take notice how my surroundings are calm and composed. The backdrop outside is filled with variegated greenery and I absolutely love it. Almost as if in a trance, I am drawn towards the window. Taking note of the foliage shivering, my brow suddenly furrows. Gracefully, slowly, almost methodically slow, they entered the large, cleared yard. Twice as large as an Ostrich they were; and all black save for the bright red stripe that rounded their upper necks, matching a red stripe that ran across their upper beaks. Side by side the mates walked, until they were joined by yet another awing creature. Larger than the other species, it flounced in on scene, sauntering past the other graceful pair. Its black feathers were so fine and delicate, it floated like an aura around the creature revealing the colour turquoise that lay hidden under all the deep black plumage. Making its way to the middle of the yard, the solitary creature stopped and then descended to the ground like a snowflake. Slowly, the male Ostrich approached. Hesitating for only a split second, it decided to lay down alongside the other. They appeared to enjoy the temperate sun kissing them.
