Things of my backyard haven

In our backyard we have many things.

Speckled fluffy silly things

clucking cooing, a bit too curious

plump and useless wings

slash the hen

Things that offer beauty joy and softness

petals bursting with good cheer

sweetness tempts the buzzing

drifting to my ear

pink peonies

Things that brood with patience

and even warn to

stay away

mad maran mix chicken

Things with whiskers soft and long

that tickles noses cheeks eyelashes

offering a moment of innocence

in a gentle silent song

aggie the bunny

Things of brown green white and rose

with whispy dreams beside

that ever keep our hearts alight

with thoughts of cloudless skies.
