the smell of the sea

the smell 
of the sea 
is overpowered by the
watermelon fragrance of newly mowed lawn

hunting for unseen tit-bits 
among shrubs –
an earthworm becomes a bone of contention

a butcherbird swoops – 
swallowing the spoil

if only the wagtails had agreed to share...
there’s enough for all of us to go around

    A writer of all, a master of none but...I know when I read a poem if I have enjoyed it. Now I have read yours and I have indeed enjoyed it Suzette. I wish you a wonderful weekend and hope you find much inspiration to continue with your writing endeavors. Love, Carol
