Lovebirds

They say love is blind

but upon meeting in our garden

these two little birds

have set up house in a spruce by the lawn

and have had a little family

Jealous rivals

tried to evict

but the long wing

of avian justice

soon sent the magpies

packing

So the little bird family

have their worms and grubs for tea

and mum and dad give little ones

rudimentary lessons in

entering and exiting the new nest

Soil (II)

An acrostic by inky, in response to the daily post prompt

Soil

Some people – call it the ground

One of natures building blocks

If you looked at it – from deep below – you would call it

Life itself

 

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

Underground

underground

mole

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
