Crimson’s Creative Challenge #212 #Creatures of the night

Beneath bronzed bracken fronds are formed

tracks left by frenzied creatures as

the rising sun proclaims the morn

the time for foraging now is passed

beneath drooping eyelids, bellies full

warm, grass-lined burrows gently call

for now their long night’s work is done

they again await the setting sun

Bare branches bend low

bowed by the weight of ripe fruit

bountiful Autumn

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #257 #Isn’t nature wonderful

The glow worm is a quite

small bug that goes out at night

he has a luminous bum

to invite females to come

and check out the eerie green light.

Each twisted bare branch

retains a promise of fruit

blossom falls like snow.

Ronovan writes #Decima prompt #100 #Tales of the plains

On the plains of Serengeti

amazing stories may be found

where tales of life and death abound

most of which are seldom pretty

but for sure they’re always sweaty

as in the midday heat we find

predators and their prey entwined

but nothing doth instil fear more

than the sound of the lion’s roar

as it approaches from behind

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #172 #Songster of the night

Upon the branch there sits a bird

of night, his voice so seldom heard

although it’s often said you may

hear his elusive call by day

but if this bird then does give tongue

it is the same song as the sun.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #171 My lucky day

Whilst flying high up in the sky

something of interest I did spy

so carefully looking all around

I wheeled and swooped down to the ground

imagine my surprise to see

a tasty morsel just for me

but in truth I thought it wrong to steal

what had been someone else’s meal

whose it once was I could not tell

so being hungry thought, “what the hell,

I’ve had nothing else to eat

so gobbled up the tasty treat

We sit by the burn

and remember the old days

Spring in the Highlands

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
