the red sun goes down

a line of geese in the sky

dusk precedes the dark

Ronovan writes #Decima prompt #90 The beauty of nature

Out in the woods I saw today

guaranteed to lighten my heart

was a sight of natural art

for on the grass I spied a jay

although quite common so they say

as on the grass he alighted

true to say I was delighted

silver blue wingtips shining bright

and chessboard flanks of black and white

with fawn and purple neck and breast

his long beak probing on it’s quest

truly a magnificent sight

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #240 Guardian of the forest

Whether in a sunlit forest clearing

or hidden deep within the dank, moist shade

he will be found forever preening

a gaudy, strutting Indian brave,

proudly standing with his tail displayed,

a hundred eyes are always watching

throughout earth’s history was there ever

found in nature a sight quite matching

the splendour of each jewelled feather

unlidded eyes that will not ever

close thus allowing him sleep or rest

all the while displaying pavonine breast

the faithful guardian of the forest

Sea and sky entwined

like lovers, viewed from afar

our one blue planet

I find when talking to country folk

their favourite tree is the mighty oak

so just last week whilst driving my truck

I stopped near this one to have a look

and you can imagine my surprise

I’m sure I saw a pair of eyes

so I jumped back in to tell my mate Stan

He said, don’t worry, tiz just the Green Man

he won’t hurt you if you leave him alone

but I think we’d best start heading for home.

In the dark, cold night

we witness the Northern lights

with eyes of a child

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #143

Whilst on a trip down to the Weald

I went for a walk through the fields

The air smelt fresh, I soon saw why

On the hill was a huge pig sty

I have no qualms about pig-shit

Just glad I didn’t walk through it

Then a story came to my mind

The tale of the Gadarene swine

And the farmers in this region

Wouldn’t like it if I were Legion

Crimsons Creative Challenge #140

Yesterday I went for a walk to see

what we had always known as the old dead tree

but you can imagine my surprise

at the beautiful sight that met my eyes

I stood and rubbed my eyes in disbelief

every old, twisted limb was coming into leaf

then I remembered what my mother once said

that nothing in nature is completely dead

and when old trees finally fall to the ground

their end of life will benefit all around
