Crumbled bread
no use for me
no use for you,
for our birds
matter of survival.

Silence… Death…

1037

In the sun-drenched skyline
harvests lay abandoned,
crops withered across the land
for it was a time of dying.

Pockets of humanity had escaped
the  swath of death,
that had laid waste
to the human civilisation.

Countless empty villages
lay silent and forbidding,
mass graves everywhere
filled, with tangled skeletons.

Silence reigns everywhere
with the absence of life,
as radio-active winds
bring death and destruction.

All Seasons

Reflections by Liek

Late snowfall had melted
bleating new born lambs faded,
spring was on its way
village gardens come to life.

Bluebells sapphired the woodlands
buttercups gilded the meadows,
daffodils gave way to pansies
blazing baskets all in bloom.

As summer burst forth
blue skies and white clouds,
blue lakes and white swans
feeding crumbs, to hungry swans.

Butterflies exploding from hedgerows
dragon flies glinted in the sun,
insects skate upon the surface
of the village pond.

Soft breezes, rustling wind
summertime moving with the breeze,
leaves turning golden brown
autumn is a coming.

Storms battled with the sun
rainbows across the shoreline,
as autumn moves in
with a chill in the wind.

Leaves fall from the trees
plants shedding their leaves,
temperatures plummet
as winter moves in…

Creature Comforts

1007

He kindly took me in
when I had nowhere to go,
for I had been driven out
by the family dog.

He gave me shelter
when it rained,
he gave me warmth
when it was cold.

He shared his salmon
when I was hungry,
he gave me milk
when I was thirsty.

I would sit upon his lap
and he fed me chicken,
as he ate ice-cream
I would lick the carton.

I sunbathed amid the grasses
slept under the pampas grass,
he made me feel safe
and I trusted him.

I never knew, life
could be so good
as I fell asleep
in his arms…
