IT’S THE SMALL THINGS

I NEVER THOUGHT A FLASH OF BLUE WING
IN A SPOT OF SUN COULD BE QUITE SO RIVETTING
BUT I DID LOOK A LONG TIME
THEN IT DARTED OFF, NOW AND THEN HIDING
I WOULDN’T HAVE TOUCHED IT ANYWAY, IT WAS FAR TOO DELICATE A THING
ITS BEAUTIFUL BLING
LEFT AN IMPRINT ON MY MIND’S EYE
TO BE RECALLED WHEN SITTING.
THEN THERE WAS A BLUSH OF RED IN A BUSH
WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE MERELY HIBISCUS
THERE WERE BROWN COMMON FOWLS
RUMMAGING ABOUT
I DIDN’T THINK THERE WAS A NEED TO SHOUT
TILL A FUNNY LITTLE SCUTTLE TURNED OUT
TO BE A MONSTROSITY
– A MONITOR LIZARD  –
I MIGHT HAVE RUN AWAY TOO QUICKLY!

I DO PREFER YOUR SMALLER THINGS  …
