Wiry silver threads

Enlongated under hall cupboards

By the stairs

Weaved by a six-legged weaver

Everyone admires the

Beauty of their craft

Wafting around in the draft of the house

Every insect around knows

Bristles of doom await

While the spiders home hangs around

Every fly prays for a

Brush or feather duster

When any insect

Even attempts to escape

Back comes the spider

Wiry and Delicate

Every flies nightmare

Fairies rising (Image by Inky)

What’s that coming out of my cup of chai ?

colorful things rise and fly

up and down and round about

following the trail of the steam spout

far into the air they fly and rise

like colourful luminous butterflies

captured by the camera’s eye

before out of the kitchen they do fly

Ode to a fly

#Napowrimo #fly #insect

A fly flew round the mulberry bush

the fly himself got bored

he headed for an open window

and through the air he soared

his little wings a flying

he stopped upon something sweet

he landed on the bowl they were in

and decided to enjoy a treat

but then who should come wondering,

as he came out of the cage

with feathers red blue and green

landing by little flies stage

and the bird had our small friend for dinner

as on the orange he munched

so now say goodbye, to our small friend , the fly

who the birdie has just had for lunch

Bewitching

No photo description available.

#Fowc #Bewitching

You couldn’t put your finger on it,

the way this junior librarian looked her way

and you jumped right to it

Maybe it was her smile

or the way she had her hair

that captured your eye

you would share a drink at lunchtime

while the boys just stared and looked

and the cat stared from her handbag – their goose was cooked

But meeting that night – impossible

as off in the air she’d fly

leaving you down on terra firma

as she flew through the stars in sky
