Two Little Brown Birds Return (a poem)

The two little brown birds returned this morning,

With their light feet and backs speckled black,

Seeking a snack between the grass patches,

Chattering to each other “Here! Here! Here!”

Scattering when the dog’s shadow loomed in window,

Now teasing from the trees above, “Catch me if you can!”


Be well,

Word Garden

My community in Shanghai is currently locked down due to Covid restrictions for two weeks. What a blessing to have such a wonderful garden to be “locked-into” to do my writing.


Word Garden

Bamboo bends, sweeping down, lifting my spirits;

Dropped leaves floating in small green puddles of reflection;

Flower-full trees rustle in the breeze, sharing of themselves

fragrantly;

A butterfly flutters,

teasingly;

The dog chases it,

playfully;

All, my muses, I write.



Be well,

Monty

Puddle of Pink

A poem


Puddle of Pink

Drips and blobs of heavy drops

Descending at terminal speed

Not the slightest wind of persuasion

To delay or divert their decent.

Plopping masses pounding

The delicate pink petals

Until so laden they drop

To a puddle of pink.


Be well,

Monty
