Soup of Phrases

Sounds of the whippoorwill echo back boisterously in tune,
Crickets legs moving feverishly to make their constant blues,
While greenery throughout the yard is creating divine fall hues.
A female Anole eats her drying shedding skin for extra protein,
Exquisite is the web of the grand garden spider in the light dew,
and easily visible between oaks with the sky's bright etched blue.
Two-spotted fawns nibble on a patch of pliable moss and clover,
Aggressive is the squirrel chasing the bunny seeking seeds,
Soaring all seasons, the tired Red Tail Hawk also yearly breeds.
Seen from the window sill where I seek elusive floating words,
Intricately dipped and wrapped into rare bits and pieces of me,
Into this soup of phrases, I plunge to describe what I feel and see.

  1. Ohhhh, Joni! Kindred spirits!! I adore dark chocolate and can (hope & pray?) that my love will be “hand-dipped in dark chocolate and delivered on a flying spoon.” What an inspirational & imaginative turn of phrase! Wishing you lots of dark chocolate love delivered on multiple flying spoons! 🙂
