SIDEWALK ORNAMENTALS

SIDEWALK ORNAMENTALS

Little brown morsels on the walk,

As if where a goose might stalk…

Of a plant nature,

Pine cones–nomenclature–

Literally pushed off the stalk.

-

Old pine cones make way for new,

I think they’re spruce, don’t you…

Smaller than pine

Seeds small and fine,

Lying there looking so blue.

-

Maybe squirrel or bird trickle-down

In feeding threw them to ground…

They await a broom,

Detritus soon

Destined to be compost pile bound!

–Jonathan Caswell

The life of a sock~by Mark Muthiora

Jonathan Caswell:

LIFE OF A SOCK, ANYONE? :)

Originally posted on OUR POETRY CORNER:

The life of a sock

 

The life of a sock, as in the one stepped on
Not my cousin the a hundred bob
Is a life of sorrows
My life stinks, literally or otherwise.

Just last week I made news
The gutter press hinting that
A famous marriage was on the rocks
When the governor’s wife forgot to darn my wound.

April Snow

Jonathan Caswell:

YESSIREE!!!!

Originally posted on forgottenmeadows:

My spring seeds lay dormant on April snow,

Too bitter and too cold for them to grow,

they sleep under earth’s blanket.

It worked! Frankie slept all night without a peep. And me? The best night’s sleep since she moved in.

So it’s 6.30 am and this is where she is now……

Birmingham canal

It may not be Venice but Birmingham (UK) has some great canals. This shot was taken in the heart of the city centre, where it’s still possible to escape the traffic and crowds and enjoy a drink, something to eat and a stroll in peace in Britain’s second city.

A TIMELY POST.

you realised that
it’s you who made me mad

that’s why you felt bad
hid under the murk
and turned red-faced too
