Sparrows II

#birds

Scattered food lying on the tarmac, brings them here

Preening themselves in the fallen

Aqua that you and I call rain

Reactions to the feast, vary from

Roars of delight to sunflower seeds to

Overall disappointment …. small grains again ?

When the back door opens and the treasures

Spread across the ground, far and wide

Art from nature

#nature #art #autumn

Who needs oil on canvas

When the simplest of pleasures

Works it’s way on to the paper

With simple tools such as coloured pencil

When pressure is gently applied

Wiry shapes on the fallen leaves

Will appear…bringing the image of the leaf back to life

Changing

#octpowrimo

The trees are changing

As the temperature drops

As fast as the rain

Vibrant greens transform

Into a picturesque palette5

Of reds and browns

Signs of mercury

Travelling swiftly towards

The thermometer bulb

And deciduous trees all

Shed their leaves and seeds

In attempt to create new plants

Plain sight

#octpowrimo #hidden #dragons

the mighty dragons didn’t disappear,

reality is…they took a different form

each knight giving up their quest of vanquish as

every dragon decided to rest among the greens

Seen hiding in the forests, or swimming in the depths

Falling through the cracks

It’s hard for a seed

To grow up in the big city

As it flies from its mum

And falls to the floor

Drifting in the wind

If lucky, it will land

Onto soft warm soil

But usually, it finds concrete

So it sleeps , and it grows

Fed by the rain

While it finds its own way

Through the sand and the drains

Popping up for sunshine

To the world saying hello

Don’t pull it from the pavement

For a bit, let it grow.

Here’s Another poem on a tree seed Helicopters, feel free to take a look and comment

Nautilus

Now sat with the other beachcombers treasures

A home for the hermit crab

Until yesterday it was collecting plankton on the sea bed

Till it was hoisted up and placed carefully

In a yellow collection bucket, where it

Lived with others like it

Until the beachcomber created

Something to make his house guests smile

Summer days

white fluffy clouds make their way towards the sea

while cool winds come in off the western coast

butterflies take in nectar

from the yellowest of daffodils

while birds blend in with reds and blues

on the hunt for the grubs for lunch

With the appearence of what seemed to be the slight raise in the mercury, i decided to walk down toward the local park and take a couple of snaps with my trusty Nikon D3100

Colourful

Colorful

could it be, the first signs of spring

out of all the signs of Mother Nature that

leap out at us,

of all those signs, green leaves appear and

radiant colours join them in the

form of beautiful blossoms … whilst

underneath them ?

luscious fruits
