My Garden


A ray of sunshine
Lit these leaves
Showing their detail
Like miniature trees

Many shades
Of red and green
And lots of colours
In between

A different world
Exists down there
Where insects rule
And plants beware

A spider spins
A silky trap
Waiting on prey
It can zap

Slugs and snails
Race round about
Eating leaves
And chutes that sprout

Diving beetles
Lurk in the pond
Where fish eggs
Have just been spawned

Small birds
Come to the feeder
Using the pond
Too get cleaner

I sit in the sun
And watch the world
Amazed by the changes
And how they unfurled
