beneath the ivy
a light scratching on dried leaves–
out hops a sparrow

  1. I cant resist

    ivy growing
    on trees… fences… house walls
    home to many
    ~
    ivy resident
    blackbirds nest… now feeding young
    serenades at dawn
    ~
    ivy nester
    a robin pair… five nestlings
    all fledged safely
    ~
    hoverflies
    take ivy flower nectar
    pollinators too
    ~
    hibernating site
    ivy… winter cover for
    peacock butterflies
    ~
    a parasite
    not ivy… an avid wall climber
    host to many
    ~
    holly and ivy
    seasonal bunting… yew too
    when frosted… wonders
    ~
    Ivy.. what a beaut
    accompanied by you
    jealous Holly
    ~
    dusk arrives
    hark… a duo singing
    ivy bids them sleep
    ~
    haiku… my blessing
    a stream of words like rivers
    floods the thirsty page

    Thanks for the inspiration, watch out for a pingback.
