DETRITUS SLIPPITIS

DETRITUS SLIPPITIS

Surely one thing will unite us,

Concern for “detritus slippitis”…

Dead leaves on the ground

Are slippery when found,

Falling finds the ground right beside us!

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!
