Ethical ELA is starting their monthly Quick Write with a challenge to use kennings in our poem. Jennifer Jowett is the host today.

California Quail

California’s bird — wild,
But gentle as a child
Belly white-tiled

Moisture gatherer
Ka-kah-ko chatterer
Attentive father
Scratches for fodder

Gregarious guy
Handsome and spry
Flies from a hawk
But prefers to walk
Comma Topknot
Audubon bigshot
