Flapping wings fluttering about
Blackcurrant and raspberry bushes
Interwoven with weeds

Teeny-tiny ants treading around laid down cover,
Climbing on limbs
Human presence disturbed by Nature’s touch

Beautiful chaos
Endless strife
Humans invading
Nature gaining ground
Humans pushing back

She was just asking for 10 minutes of undisturbed sleep…

Teeny-tiny bodies lying dead
On the fabric in her wake
Crushed in a creature’s quest for sleep,

Now Rest In Peace

    Us giant creatures can be so clumsy and unforgiving at times, a lovely verse.

    1. Most definitely. You feel it so much more when you are in the countryside or in the mountains, where nature is wilder, not used to human presence and just thriving all around. Thank you for appreciating my words, Ivor 🙂
