He loved it- dancing when the sky got cloudywhen the air got that delicious smell of rain, when the wind carried with itself the message of a shower soon to come.

He would spread his magnificent plumage and dance to the rhythm of his heart. There was nothing that could give him such joy. Only dance could make him so happy, and so, he would dance some more.
