An acrostic by inky, in response to the daily post prompt
Some people – call it the ground
One of natures building blocks
If you looked at it – from deep below – you would call it
Several different creatures – they call it home
On occasion , they climb out of their earthy house for a drop of sun
Insects , worms and nocturnal mammals
Like living underground
Some plants – enjoy being
Outside, like trees and bushes, whilst others like
Indoors, mostly because of the weather – all are
Linked by the substance around their roots
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!

From down in the ground
on cold winter ❄️ months
long 🍃 leaves take time to grow.
As their heads pop up from the ground
rejoice! For their dark green foliage
mother nature fancies a change of scene
the mercury rises
and the flowers 🌺 are coming
spring has arrived.
What’s that sound
That’s not above ground ?
Under your feet
and way down the street
below the grassy mound
somethings digging around
making its way
from point a to point b
wild creature moving
off home for some tea
and on way it moves soil
pushing grasses above head
making lawns lush
before heading for bed
A tale of a Dragon, written by me for a contest in Allpoetry.com.
See that crack down on the ground ?
Quick – retreat – and don’t make a sound!
For underneath your step and leap,
a dragon lies – he’s fast asleep.
A rumble of traffic overhead
as he lies sleeping in his bed
dreaming of days long ago
flying over mountains covered in snow
Chasing the longboats of Viking hordes
taking trophies of shields and swords
with rumble of lorries – sometimes he wakes
and creates what the scholars calls – an earth quake
so careful where you step,
on that crack in the tiles
the dragons fire’s dormant…
(at least for a while!)
