He looks at me with solemn eyes,
and proudly curls his tail,
his little sides go in and out
like wind inside a sail.
He freezes, frightened some would say,
but I think he’s just vain,
he waits for me to notice him,
then whisk, he’s off again.
High up into a tree he goes,
to fetch his lady fair,
then chases her across the grass,
so I can see her there.
last star in the sky
lazily blinks its eye
night turns into day
with the scent of sun warmed hay
a dog barks down the street,
a cat purrs in the heat,
a sleepy rabbit yawns,
as a new beginning dawns.
but now a silence falls
where once were childrens calls
where sleepy parents smiled
at the antics of a child
for man’s no longer bound
like ants upon the ground
and he is gone afar
to seek a distant star
the animals now own
this paradise alone
To make up for the last two posts, here’s a silly one that I wrote when I was living in an RV. in a state park. ;).
whip tail, fluff tail, branch to roof to yard,
eye glow, night show, chitters in the dark,
claw hands, paw hands, clever fingers moving fast
trash cans, clash cans, isn’t this a lark?
mask face, task face, watching for a light,
light now, fright now, disappear into the night,
helter skelter scamper climb, clang of dropping can,
safely into silent hole, hidden from the man.
