Posts Tagged ‘POEM:SplendidBlue’

Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet on here lately, I’ve been making things for my gorgeous new-born grandson Bodhi ~ my clever daughter Jessica McCallum‘s latest creation.

However, today my muse smiled as I was reading updates on Facebook and 2 photos inspired me.

A friend in Cork, Patrick Cotter posted a colourful picture of  his socks; “These single socks seem to think I have nothing better to do than run a dating agency for them.” and I couldn’t help myself:

 

Dating

A colourful

individual;

a well-heeled

single, looking

for a match,

with similar need.

And another artistic friend on Facebook, Aaron Pocock posted a photo of “2-3 watercolours from the last couple of days” of these beautiful Australian birds :

Malurus splendens -Yangebup, Western Australia, Australia -male-8.jpg

 

Splendid Blue

 

In breeding plumage

his world knows no guns,

only the garden sprays

killing his insect food.

 

Still, he flits and flirts,

happy in his life work.

Seeking shades of brown

and grey among the twigs.

 

There, a most superb mate

waits, quietly seed-feeding

to proliferate their kind.

A species not in danger – yet.
