Pentapede Poems III

An Ambush
As I was hanging in the tree,
A little birdy spotted me
"Foolish thing, so plain to see,
I'll make a munch-crunch snack of thee!"

But birdies are an impulsive lot.
They never have much time for thought.
If he hadn't been so hot-to-trot...
He'd not be for our dinner caught!
The quiet forest
And the bustle of the Nest:
Home, tranquility

Pentapedes and the Tree of Life

I know the question that's been on everyone's mind: What have those horrible little pentapedes been up to?

Well, you need wonder no longer, I found some of them today...
Here's a closeup...

That's right, the little monsters are robbing the tree of life...  I can only wonder at what they're up to, but I know it's trouble!

Well, until next time, keep a close watch on your genes!

Alto Violin

Dark and silky
Your tone inspires
Awash in your melodies
Buoyed by your harmonies
I float in a sea of notes
Your gentle turns caress my ears
And fill my soul with the richness
That flows from you
