A Red Waistcoat And Green Fingers

A Red Waistcoat And Green Fingers

A Poem by Gee
"

Hide and seek on an allotment

"
Hide and seek flirtatiously
flitting to and fro',
between the newly upturned sods
and bramble laced hedgerow.

A robin with the old man played
as always on it's terms,
hiding whilst the gardener toiled
then seeking out the worms.

Ah, the red waistcoat of the robin, letting the human find his dinner for him...and we have the cheek to think we're in charge. Who are we fooling? I would write more, but the dogs gonna take me for a walk :)

Thank you...
Very nice use of words.
"Hide and seek ,flirtatiously,
flitting to and fro',
between the newly upturned sods,
and bramble laced hedgerow."
The above lines. They danced and create visions for the reader. I liked the way you twisted the words to make your point. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
