Bird – Ungullible!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bird

The Seagulls’ attitude
An aire of defiance
For me they are
The embodiment of freedom.

Autumn…

SONY DSC

I awoke again this morning
With the scent of Autumn in the air.
It invigorated my spirit
End of summer’s almost there.

I can feel a building of excitement
As the season’s change again
The urge to gather nuts and stores
Ready for the onslaught
Of winters wind and rain.

I usually feel a sadness
When Summer’s almost done
But I’ve had my fill of sunshine
So now  Autumn…  bring it on!

 

Day 6: The space to write

I like to write in solitude
A space that’s just for me
A space of personal heaven
A space where thoughts run free.

Though sometimes contemplation
Requires mere dictation
So mobile phone
And me alone
Express those thoughts in motion.

But choice for me
Is cup of tea
And silence
Solitude
In any room
That’s anywhere
That’s just my habitude.

Tuesdays of Texture – Sandy Memories

A moment in time
Captured in sand
Soon gone forever
As sea covers land.

Enjoying it now
As it won’t return
Redundant nostalgia
No reason to yearn.

This week’s contribution to Narami’s Tuesdays of Texture (de monte y mar).

Day 10: Pleasure, Sonnet, Apostrophe

Sonnet to Nature

O profound contentment nature brings
Each and every waking day
To wake and listen to the birds
Sing songs of vast array.

As morning dawns and chorus fades
To gentle bursts of song
To garden shed to pick up spades
For garden work I long.

Now robin’s spied a spade at hand
With eyes agog he’ll wait
For me to move it like a wand
Exposing worm and grub to fate.

To him – I magic up an easy meal
To me – this life of mine can seem surreal.
