Meditation

My mind was focused on two large pine cones

engaged in a race under an iron bridge

determined to reach the other side

in order

to beat the other to the bank

a force of nature willing them on

to reach the end before their friend

if you were wondering who won

of course – it was neither – it was the squirrels

now nibbling on them at the end of the bank

Family sit on the bank,

they’ve been doing this for years

keeping an eye out for their neighbours

providing cover from the atlantic wind

for the plants, and sometimes an animal or bird

and giving shade to the pretties in pink

their reward for this task

watching the breakers

coming in to the shore

Piggy Pink

Piggy is much more than humble bacon

It’s common to many – you’re not mistaken

Generous to a fault is dear old pig

Got to be said – his heart is big

Yet to avoid the fate of the butchers hook

he will be found – tending your bank book

Beaver

Brilliant builder of wood based dams

Each one of your structures an individual masterpiece

As you carefully create each one from surrounding forests

Very careful in your construction, – from

End to end , each twig and branch fits to create a

Riverside home – fit for any waterside family
