This week I thought I would use something other than an image as an illustration for my poem for Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 121 – One of my favourite videos.

This week the prompt words are ‘Slow and Work’ and I have chosen the synonyms ‘Sluggish and Task’


small bird
land softly
and soundlessly
on the sluggish hound
unknowing of your task
to obtain the precious fur
from beneath his shaggy rough coat
and if deft he will not feel swift tugs
that skillfully pluck those wisps of fine hair
Now fly swiftly away to your small nest
and weave that soft down between the twigs
that form the cradle for your eggs
then hasten back to the source
to steal a few more strands
and if luck should hold
and hunger strikes
you may find
