Restin’

Its hard to fathom

how these children of the scots pine

found their way on a bench by a northern harbour

their relatives happy to see them

still hanging around on their own tree

they’ve been hard at work

scattering their seed across the parks and greens

but now they need a break

so they’ll take five

on the bench they rest upon

before travelling on the breeze

In Hiding

#WDYS

Rocks (Image by Sean Robertson)

The fast running stream

creates a moving cloudburst

over the mossy rock

The clouds have fallen

surprising the residents

under the water

Greenery watches

as the white mist promenades

over waters surface

Among all the rocks

who’s hiding in plain sight

family of frogs

A fruity San-San

#fruit #tree #pie #San-San

Growing against the stone tudor wall

hanging fruit ripens for the pie

coming from the tree but once a season

the fruit answers the cooks call

as over the garden young birds do fly

could this be why its baked with haste

there could be no other plausible reason

to deprive the feathered friends a taste

Fissure

#Fowc #Fissure

They drilled

a small hole

to get to the treasures

hidden below

The hole let in water

and lava from below

and the small hole it moved

and began to grow

and as lava met water

it created steam

creating a water funnel

in the extreme

and the lava it cooled

filling the hole

but the lives it affected

took its own toll

Day/Night

#octpowrimo #Day #Night

Sunshine popped up from

Under the horizon – The beginning of a

New day

Snoozing flowers taking a stretch

Helping themselves to a bright spot

In a Moment, new shoots will

Negotiate their way through the soil

Elevating themselves to the clouds

Now when the sun has done his bit

Excitable little luna comes out to play

When its time for little un’s to go to bed

moonlight falling

over areas where the Neon and LEDs cannot

owls flying through the nightsky

navigation aided by the stars and moon

Emerging

#Writephoto #Emerging

Everybody – keep calm

may as it seen – it looks like a giant coming through the wall

every forester knows who it is – its Pan!

reviving the trees and preparing them for autumn

green grasses being pushed up by his fingers

it might come as a shock – but hes a busy guy this time of year

note how the seeds are opening up and falling to

ground ? Thats all down to him

Waiting

#skies #plants #vegetables

While we’ve all been indoors

away from the cold and wind and the rain

in the ground, the vegetables have been waiting

they’ve waited in the farmers field, for the harvest sun

in expectation it’ll be a little bit more warmer – when they rise

next thing they’ll know – they’ll be accompanying the sunday roast

getting a warm bath and served up wi butter

Falling

#fowc #falling

From a considerable height

an acorn and his chums

launched themselves off a

leafy covered tree

in wait, the local wildlife

now waiting for the fruits of the tree, aided by

gravity

tree, created from orginal photo by inky

like a rocket the shoots of the tree

extended out to the sky

and as it did – the winds blew it gently to and fro

now the trees arms are nearer to the squirrels than the birds

The “Green” Bin

#CFFC #Pink

It’s hidden away

the muncher of the grass clippings

but easily spotted

if you know where to look

The Acer and the conifers smile

as the backyard waste control

engages with the garden ornaments

in a game of hide and seek

Garden Fairies Giggle

as his strawberry coloured hat

tells every bird and squirrel

exactly where he is

But One day – what’s this?

He seems to have disappeared

Wondering beyond the rock garden

That’s weird.

He’s been emptied out

by the big white van

to turn the clippings to biofuel

that’s the plan.
