Sunday Sonnet!


Their squawking riles the residents around,
Aggressive when considered under threat,
Along the sea in Summer they abound,
Forcing a neighbour to protect her pet;
Fiercely protective of their fledgling young,
A cry for ‘Help’, receives a mass response;
Dive-bombing and a blanketing of dung,
Potential predator shall soon ensconce;
And yet, ’tis well they scavenge for their food,
Essential to keep Mother Nature clean,
For, though their presence many would occlude,
Much rather should environment be green.
For each a place in Nature is reserved
That Common Good be readily preserved!

When the cold winds blow,
Whistling mournfully outside,
Winter round the hearth!

After weary day,
Comforting bed beckons,
Peaceful night descends!

Windows open wide
Flooding rooms with Summer sun,
Salve for lonely hearts!

Mealtime together,
Sharing time, space and converse,
Enhances bonding!
