    A Natural Selection # 4

    ON A STORMY NIGHT

    On a stormy night
    As strangers slumber
    Around the gables
    The wild wind howled
    And rain hit the panes
    Like thrown gravel
    As the lightning struck
    And thunder growled

    THE HEATHERS ON THE HILLSIDE

    The Heathers on the hillside
    And Buttercups in the meadow
    The Bluebells in the woods
    And Orchids in the hedgerow
    What a green and pleasant land
    Where the wild flowers grow

    AS THE EVENING LIGHT FADES

    As the evening light fades
    The sky takes on a twilight hue
    Until the stars appear above
    And the moon comes into view

    THE RED KITE

    The Red Kite
    Beautiful in flight
    In the cape verde sky
    Raptor flying high

    FROM THE BREAK OF EACH NEW DAWN

    From the break of each new dawn
    When heralding the new day
    The sun crests the horizon
    To Paint the eastern sky
    With natures orange glow
    Until it sets again
    In majestic splendour
    Beyond the western hills
    And is swallowed by the darkness
    It gives life with its benevolent light

    LITTLE BIRD BRING US

    Little bird bring us
    Your sweet song
    To woodland
    And to meadow
    Usher in another
    Blessed summer

    Always a joy to read.

    While I liked LITTLE BIRD BRING US, it was just short, in my humble opinion, of scanning properly some how.

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami
