  2. Hey Sammi, Namaste 🙂

    The weekend at last: it’s always so very welcome whenever it shows up. I hope you’ve had an enjoyable week.

    No doubt it’s very cheeky of me to slide this poem into your comments box and break the line limit rule, but I’m feeling that way today lol 🙂

    ~ Charlie Scarecrow ~
    ~
    In warming soil a scarecrow stood:
    Amidst snowmelt and shrubbery.
    Patiently attending to tender-tips,
    For their journeys of discovery.
    ~
    Beneath his robes of rag and straw,
    In a place we’ll never know.
    Beats Nature’s heart ever-green,
    From where his scarecrow flows.
    ~
    He appears everlasting, always there,
    Always gardening with tender care:
    With green-fingered magical flare,
    He encourages new life everywhere.
    ~
    I’ve seen him hold both birds and bees,
    Even talk to Owls high up in trees.
    I’ve heard him whistle as he works,
    Heard him snoring as he shirks!
    ~
    I saw him once harvest shining stars,
    From boughs of the Milky Way.
    I watched him gift ’em to fairy-folk,
    To help light-up their way.
    ~
    He had no name when he came to me,
    Then dug himself in the ground.
    Charlie, my mum said, as if she knew,
    His name had then been found!
    ~
    Charlie always chats with mum,
    Whilst she’s pottering away.
    I’ve asked her what they talk about,
    But she’s very reluctant to say.
    ~
    Her rosy cheeks and twinkling eyes
    Have led me to conclude,
    That Charlie her gardening scarecrow,
    Is more than herbaceously shrewd!
    ~
    Charlie’s weathered well across the years,
    Despite the wind the rain and snow.
    But the reason that he’s never left,
    Is because mum just loves him so!

      ~ Evergreen ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~
      ~
      The Evergreen was the first,
      First ship to leave planet Earth,
      In the aftermath of nuclear war:
      That tore our world in two.
      So few survived, so few alive,
      To keep alive the dream:
      Of finding Home beyond the Earth,
      With Love and Peace everlasting.
      ~*~

      Namaste 🙂

    • Cheeky, but I forgive you lol…Only joking; it’s not cheeky at all 😀
      Thanks for sharing the poem here, Dewin. Charlie Scarecrow sounds amazing. I love the idea of him “harvesting shining stars” 🙂
