Three Seahorses

More animal poetry is on the way when I listen to what the animals say

I’ve finished writing “Seahorse Medicine for future humans” and my next step is to illustrate, edit and format for print but that takes time and money both of which are stretched thin at the moment. However, I do keep on writing and now have enough poetry for a second book of children’s animal poetry (Seahorse Medicine Too Grow) as well as begining on a third collection called “Seahorse Medicine Three: Animals speak through me.”

The following poems will be included in the third book

The Bush Turkey

The Bush turkey is a nurturing man

Hatches the eggs because he can

In the forest

Scratch around

Pile the leaves 

Bush turkey mound

Raises the kids 

For his wife

Father nurtures

New young life

Feels the temperature

Neck of yellow

Patient waiting

Until chicks cheep, “hello”

“Daddy, daddy we love you”

For all the nurturing 

You do”

Bush turkey

With a head of red

Yellow necklace

Powerful legs

Wings of Black

Lustre Shine

You nurture life

You are 

Divine

Brother Bush turkey

Came toward me

His three sisters hid away

He’d come over as a decoy

To protect his sisters

What a boy

There was dad

Working hard

Big yellow neck

Scratching hard

With powerful legs

Adjust the temperature

Incubating eggs

Gentle men

Care and protect

Nurture family

And respect life

Just like a Bush turkey

Soldier Crabs 1

Sensitive and strong 

With armour of blue

Left right left right 

How do you

Not trip over 

With so many legs

Running all together 

And not tangle your legs?

 

Tiny Birds

Little tiny birds fly towards the light

To escape the darkness and when they’re closed inside

Up towards the heaven where the sun lights up the sky

Little birds swoop and soar towards the light up high

Honeyeater
Honey Eater

Fairy Wren

Fairy Wren with a head of blue

You only ever sing words true

Fairy Wren you are correct

Because you know cause and effect

And if you ever tell a lie

A part inside of you will die

Honest little Fairy Wren

I trust you my blue head friend

 

Fairy wren said, “Please Stop Striving

Against each other, fussing and fighting

We’re all in this together

Let’s work for peace forever

All beings can live in love

Not only the peace dove

It’s time that you decide

To cooperate and stop to strive

 

Fairy Wren with a head of blue

I’ve taken on your words as true

Ensure my words are true and correct

My cause correct, the right effect

Throat chakra shining brilliant blues

Only singing loving truths

Honest little Fairy Wren

You show the way my truthful friend
