Crimson’s Creative Challenge #161

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.

When the snail moves house

it is done at his own pace

a job for wet days

We came upon a clearing where

birdsong drifted on the air

and gently lifted on the breeze

came the sound of trembling leaves,

trying not to make a sound

we laid our coats upon the ground

and leaning back against a tree

we poured ourselves a cup of tea.

Just fine and dandy

when the lion takes siesta

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #226 #The skylark

A combine does it’s plotted round

leaves no waste upon the ground

to maintain our world of plenty

whilst my crop remains empty

no butterfly, aphid or bee

to feed my hungry family

I remember horses in the yard

their days were long, often hard

cutting the corn at stately pace

to feed the growing human race

now I fear those halcyon days

will be lost forever in the haze

of time, imprinted on our memory

just a sad but too familiar story

In the dark, cold night

we witness the Northern lights

with eyes of a child

When apple blossom

is a riot of colour

Spring scent fills the air

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

Using homespun threads

an intricate web she will weave

before each day breaks

Does a sparrow chirp

finding no desire to sing

by convention pressed
