Two Magpies On A Window Sill



Today

Two Magpies passed us by today

as some spiders weaved a home,

and sat in silence to survey.


Up High

Way up high upon the window sill,

they saw One bird was Black

the other blue, with patches on his bill..


I felt the wind as Black Maggie landed,

then a little quiver on my back, as White bird found his sill.


The second spider sat in golden threads, made soft with quill.

Then Spider one dropped down

upon the white bird.

Web Of Gold

The high ride he was given, over trees and then a hill,

made him wish he'd stayed at home.

so safe ,within his web of gold, upon the window sill.

Greed

As worms and flies were gathered

that spiders eyes grew big with greed,

as White bird swooped up higher,

and travelled home to fill his

Solitary Spider

partners nest with worms and flies

and one solitary spider for her to kill..........

Hi Jand, liked this one, some may find this a little sad {about the spider} yet this is nature taking its every day course. Nature that only the lover of nature would even notice. Will be back for more.

Ah, he caught a flight upon the feathered quills that would script his demise, I love the picture of a beady eyed spider being

flown not on a strand of silk spun, but on the back of its soon to be predator. Perhaps we should all note where we might land when we turn to take flight. superb...MFB III
