Problem Solving

Three days now I’ve noticed
how the Guinea Fowl
wanting a drink
is startled by the bird
staring back from the black
bucket of fresh water.

Each day I meant to tell you
and now that I have
must add
the distraction of how
did not prevent
completion of my chores.
Except for the egg I left in the barn.

I get startled when I see my reflection, too.
