Diminutive

There were advantages to dating the short guy

having your date get in for nowt at the cinema as

everyone thought he was your little lad

Small sized portions at the restaurant

half prices all round

on occasion you always were on childrens menu

reactions to the two of you – was what was

the little lad having

Gentleman suitors watching thought it

unusual seeing the two of

you together – till of course they met him.

a tale of the first time in the canal…from one of the goslings….Interpreted by Inky 🙂

It’s a bit hard stepping out

from the little nursery pool

to the great big vast waterway

but at least my family are nearby

mum and dad watching proudly on

no water wings required

chasing my brothers and sisters about the water

just flap my feathered feet and watch me go….

Learning thru life

In response to Daily Post Prompt
Learning

24th August 2016
Building blocks of life,

Everyone knows, they have to be taught

Going from crawling to walking – now that is a biggie

Indeed, the very skill of balance is one to be mastered

Next, comes the art of communication – language that comes later, letting

Nanna or Grandad know you want changing is the second step

In getting about the house,

Next – its mastering those things called forks and spoons – a messy job

Going to school ? a doddle to navigating the living room and tying those boots.

Birdsong

#Napowrimo #blogging101 #birds

Hiding away, among the stacked up bricks

a mother bird, tends to her home with sticks

whilst up in the air, the kids have a ball

Chaos ensues as they rise and fall

Happy they chirp – as they go on and play

till the sun crosses sky – its the end of the day

but off to the garden – they save their dads wrath,

as they roll all their feathers in the nearest bird bath.
