Natural Nonsense

Natural Nonsense

A curtain of hail
Had awoken the snail
Who jumped out of his shell
To find all was not well
With his friend basking shark
Who'd been up with the lark
At the sound of the bark
Of the dog who can't sleep
Despite counting sheep
Jumping over a gate
Unaware that their fate
Is to end on a plate
Swimming in gravy
With a seal from the navy
Battling the tide
And nowhere to hide
From the wife and his bride
Both of them male
Who'd got out of jail
In a curtain of hail...

Dauphy, “Do we start again then?”

Hobbo,”No, not unless you want to.”

Dauphy, “It doesn’t make sense.”

Hobbo, “It’s nonsense.”

Dauphy, “And you say I’m daft…”

Animals and Nature

Dauphy’s friend, Bella

Good morning everyone. I haven’t posted any new poems today because I am trying to tidy my blog a bit. There were too many poems in the general section, so I’ve pulled some out and put them into a new category, ‘Animals and Nature.’ Have a look by clicking the link in the menu top right, and I’d be interested to know what you think. Thank you.

A shivering tiny field-mouse
He wanted to live in a house
I know it's a shame
But the clue's in your name
Said Minnie, his long suffering spouse

totally opposite
the natural order
this bird in a cage.

The commonest bird in Great Britain
Not sea bird, not game bird, not fowl
This bird's to be found in your kitchen
It's every day name, the Teat Owl.

The Garden

an hour in the garden
reconnect with nature
music for the mind.

The Fox

The fox
Stealthily creeping
Sleek and sly
Brush tail sweeping
The fox glides by.

Seasonal Change

A ‘senryu’ competition entry about seasonal change today…

And if, like me, you thought, “What the heck is senryu?” check out our new senryu page.
