Poem for Totally Optional Prompts

Totally Optional Prompts offers: Uninvited Guests - what do you do with them?

boisterous birds
shred the silence from

the first warm spring day
shatter my nerves

camera lens reveals
a baker's dozen shriekers

hopping at the diving board
in the pool and out, except

one frightened screamer
who needs skimming

and set aside to dry
his feathers calmed

before the glorious day
resumes its serenity

Glorious day indeed.

Are the robins waking you in the morning too...can't live with them and can't live without them.

I like 'his feathers calmed before the glorious day.'

A great interpretation of nature. Felt just right.

Cool! I like the way the last word of each pair drops onto the first one of the next, if you get my drift!!

He was scared by his own sense of adventure. How cute. The advent of summer always brings the unexpected!

I can just visualize that whole event! Lovely writing.

in your case i guess you skim them and then wait for them to drip dry.....

I love this! is it a new one? My goodness, the things you find in your pool! Who knew a pool would be such a prolific source of material... I am sorry I'll miss you in ID - you'll pardon me if I hope you have to stay home...

I love this!! I can't believe the things you find in your pool! who knew a pool would be such a source of poetic material.. I'm sorry you won't be home when I'm there - you'll pardon me if I hope your plans fall through..
