Tender bits of love

Shadows now quiver Leafy designs on grass As sated leaves rustle On a tall red maple When fleeting rain’s gone. Striped in brown A lone sparrow hops From branch to branch In purposeful dance. Not a cloud is found In vibrant sky above As horizon dreams Visions of sundown. Sun rays scatter Through drops of water On blossoms of flowers Refracting light From optical prisms Gleaming gemstones As warm air breezes Petrichor emotions. Suddenly a chatter Lifts up insects And lands in the nest Full of young ones, Feeding beak to beak Tender bits of love. April 21, 2020 Placed 2nd: Strand Pick B contest by Brian Strand

Certainly a busy time for the parents, looking after the young until theyre able to fly the nest. A nice change Vijay, from all the gloom we gave at the moment. Hope you're well. Tom
