Hidden

parkart2

In the green of the park

Never miss a moment

Vast numbers of creatures live

In every nook and cranny across the field of grass

Some, sleep in the wood – whilst others live

In the ground, pushing up the grass you play on

Birds nest hide away – but you have to

Look closely after grabbing their food they hide

Enjoy your game of Hide and seek – with such luck – you might get a peek!

A Plot of Earth

Garden

In response to the prompt A Plot of Earth

Small, Rectangular and Unassuming

hard to comprehend in the winter months, but

as the Mercury rises and the birds return

prized fruit begins to appear, first in flower , then in berry

even the black and white cat is pleased to see things grow,

sitting under the shadow of an acer tree

Potassium, Nitrogen and Phosphates

Lovingly turned into the soil by the gardener,

Over time , make the plants develop

Trees producing food for you and me, land their fruit

Softly on the ground – nice in a pie.

Perhaps the best time of day – spring winds

Lunging past the willows, bending

As birds pick up broken twigs, fallen

Navigating the trees for fixings for their nests

Towards the end of the day – they will construct but the

Sun is out, so on a perch they stay enjoying the flowers

A New Nest

Animals, Nature

A poem by me, published in the Allpoetry publication – “Reflected Memories”, about a nearby redevelopment and the birds who lived on the roof

a new nest

As the humans left
The old Victorian building
Squatters moved in
To take their place

The new owners
Took a shine at first
To their feathered friends
But not for long

High pitched noises
Made it clear
To the winged residents
“Not wanted here!”

And so, buildings been done
Without a need
To give the winged locals
A regular feed

But on nearby rooftops
The winged ones are back
And heavy set builders
Fear feathery flack
