He is blending in

These baby duckies
Must learn by listening
To things that Mom says

there’s a story here
if we could only read it
shall we make one up

of the brash wee can –
knight in shining armour who
bravely fought tin snips

The cycle of life
Timeframes may be different
Applies to all things

[Ian] Fly

fly on the window
sees more than fly on a wall
but will not hear much

[Ian] Superfly

superhero bug
in its skeletal costume
will right tiny wrongs

[Ian] Break

the warning stick man
takes a wee break now and then
to lie down and smoke

City Spring

urban gardening
these Buds need no watering
or glassy vases

[Ian] Sprung

the icy ground yields
no match for life bursting through
spring will always win

The first sprigs of green
Cabbage patch kids of the spring
Deserve their own names
