The Wonder In Woods With Squirrels and Chipmunks!

Judy Underwood, Chasing Rainbow

Thursday Flash Fiction Week 28: Innocence and Dreams

Snow falls as heavy as salt,
the woods speaks in the voice of a birds' cry,
a cat's meow,
time tells who is there,
being self-centered or being fair,
nature is magical to plants everywhere,
such as hickory, willow, oak, or birch,
animals like squirrels or chipmunks jumps,
cracking nuts while rolling their eyeballs left or right,
the wind shuffles like a bell
as i open the space,
to taste the freshness in wild grace.

Against Winter By Charles Simic

Image Credit:

The truth is dark under your eyelids,
What are you going to do about it?
The birds are silent, there's no one to ask.
All day long you'll squint at the gray sky,
When the wind blows you'll shiver like straw!


A meek little lamb, you grew your wool
till they came after you with huge shears,
Flies hovered over your open mouth,
Then they, too, flew off like the leaves,
The bare branches reached after them in vain.


Winter coming, like the last heroic soldier
of a defeated army, you'll stay at your past,
Head bared to the first snowflakes,
Till a neighbor comes to yell at you,
You're crazier than the weather, Charlie!

I Make Sense when It comes To Knowledge!

image credit:

 I'm the world famous Know-it-all Tomient,
What there is to know, I always know it,
It takes wisdom,
It costs courage,
I'm the president of universal college,
what I did not know, it isn't knowledge!
