Brown Wren Sentential

Brown Wren Sentential


I peer through the globe that is my window

  To watch the shower of fleecy snow

Spun into a blanket upon natures spindle

A white coverlet setting the landscape aglow


The craving comes from out of nowhere

For a fat cigar and a glass of rum

Whilst fishing from my rickedy pier that meanders

  Lazily swaying with each swamp breath across the run


The engaging vision reluctantly flees

Leaving a pirating catfish leaping to catch a bluefly

As a shadowy muddled quiver of dread impedes

  I return to my window and the view outside


A brown wren sentential is standing watch

  Amongst the icy twigs in my sleeping garden

Quietly patient clinched firm its clout

I wished for, but heard not its sweet warbling anthem


What I wonder does it defend; I search the horizon

Thoroughly perusing all four points of the compass

Find a frolicking family of squirrels on a forage mission

So carefree leaping pine branches in an effervescent dance


Far south a rich green and tenebrous yellow river drifts past

  High above two house wrens dip and expose flashing yellow tails

  Their rich bubbly chorus an angelic welcome blest

Calling the hidden fish as men cast rods of baited appeal


They’re quick to dart for the rich banquet of flies

That thrive in the swamps languid environs

Not so the bleak statue so still under white swirling sky

The marble cairns gone silently into the heavens

    Marvelously written poetic contrast to the lands still under snow on the first day of spring and those far south already breeding all manner of life and love and song in the warm sun–all on the same day!

    Piece of writing writing is also a excitement, if you be acquainted with then you can
    write or else it is complex to write.

      If I understand your comment, If this is from life then I am a writer. If this is an observation than I am attempting a complex piece. I thankyou that you think this is an exciting piece. In answer to the second part, I am writing from experience. I am well over the age of social security enrollment.
