Poem 14 - Chickadee Chase


the chickadees go darting
all around our hedge
the young girl thinks they're playing
I think that is a stretch
youthful optimism winning
don't break it is my pledge

the young girl thinks they're playing
I think that is a stretch
a courtship game of chasing
to claim this spot of hedge
youthful optimism winning
don't break it is my pledge

a courtship game of chasing
to claim this spot of hedge
ends, and so the questioning
is left without an edge
youthful optimism winning
I didn't break my pledge


Poem 13 - Sleepy Peeps


When it is nighttime in the coop
It helps to go upstairs
Go inside to a nice warm perch
It needn't take a dare

The frantic nighttime peeping says
'I don't know what to do!'
Yet when someone figures it out
They all peep loud boo-hoos

She rejoins her peeping comrades
Not wanting them distressed
So now the ramp is raised
No more chances to impress

Slowly, patiently, caught one by one
The peeps above changing
To softer bedtime sleepy peeps
No matter who is missing

Above, together, and quiet now
They huddle all as one
The night outside is strange still

Poem 12 - Finally


in my yard now sits
a coop full of peeping birds
daytime and nighttime


Poem 11 - Five Minutes, Please


just a little time
to take it for me
but someone will mind
so it's not to be
five minutes just mine!


Poem 10 - Oops-A-Daisy


Oops-a-daisy, I missed one
That day was long and I was done
The decision: sleep is fun
And of a poem there was none


Poem 9 - Voter Frustration


The election talk has begun to buzz
Why the other side is the wrong one
My head fills with well-spun but tangled fuzz
My interest lost no matter who has won

Why the other side is the wrong one
Not the message your competition outdoes
My interest lost no matter who has won
No belief in aught but the same because

Not the message your competition outdoes
Rhetoric and short term priorities spun
No belief in aught but the same because
Change from the inside out is just not done

Rhetoric and short term priorities spun
My head fills with well-spun but tangled fuzz

Poem 8 - Sleepy


when the long day ends
my checklist uncompleted
my tired eyes droop


Poem 7 - I'm an Introvert


It's not that I don't like people
Nor is visiting that ill
Truthfully, I can enjoy those things
Really short doses of them
Or with those few, special people
Very long interludes
Exhaustion eventually sets in
Relaxation, alone, is what I need
To gain my energy back for the next encounter


Poem 6 - In Parallel


A field of mud with livestock
Something to make the kids talk
Whether it goes 'moo' or 'bock'
A return to the old stock


Chapter 18: Decentius Uncovers a Mystery - Part 2


Now I was once again stuck in the shadow under the cart. I pushed gently at the edge where the second guardsman stood trying to get a reaction from his essence. I only bumped into a wall. I realized that he was probably in the same place I had pushed him to when I was trying to get out. Down here he would have no idea how to move himself, until I prompted him. I circled around and pushed from the other side, hoping that if it caused him to move at least he would be moving closer to the target.
