Swallow

Sat on a branch of a silver birch or oak

waiting for the rest of the gang to catch up

a wonder of the skies takes a break

letting himself have a rest before taking off again

little bird of blue white and black

over the heights he looks, planning

where he will swoop to next

Branch

Branch

bold parts of the tree that

reach out towards the warm sunshine

aiming high in the sky, fruits or

nuts usually grow off them.  And these

come off the tree when the wood becomes

heavy due to the weight of the fruit

Hidden away among a mountain of leaves

the humble blackberry grows on its branch

biding its time till a meeting awaits

when it drops down into a sugary pool

and parties with its pals

no selfies needed here – they’re all jammin’

Garden Apple Pie

 

A San-San By Brian F Kirkham (Inky)

 

The branches against the household wall

holds fruit that’s ripening for a pie

blackberry stems bring fruit with flavour this season

that answers to the pastries call

over with envy the birds do fly

could this be why it cooks with haste ?

depriving the feathered hunters a reason

to head for the window to grab a taste
