Nature’s own poetry…

From under your feet,
startled blackbird’s five-note call;
A haiku’s first line.



Gazing out the window…

A feather struggles,
pinioned in a spider’s web.
Desperate for flight.



Great bounty for hungry birds this Winter…

Red lights flicker out:
rowan trees un-berrying.
Three redwings swoop in.



A superb year for apples, can’t pick them fast enough…

Sweet, hollow humming:
wasps apple-excavating.
Jay and magpie clash.
