PROMPT: Birdsong

Fence squats and lets out a long, sad creak. 
His joints are old and his knees are (sigh) weak...

Leaves, they giggle in soft crunches as they tear,
And whooshes as they dance through the chilly air.  

Stream, -stained gold by the sun and green by fun- 
Whispers and babbles with maternal care, sh-sh-sh-sh. Bathe in me, bathe in the sun-sun-sun...

Squirrels, they scamper and scutter, 
Their paws and fluffy tails thud and flutter. Their nails skiirt and mutter. 

Bemused trees,  fush, fush, fush in the bracing breeze,
As those fat squirrels run up them, and then, leave! 

Birds, they flitter and fly
From on high.
Their wings beat, beat, beat 
As with pounds of gossip and singing they meet.

They touch down in this creaky ghost town,
Of chipped birdhouses with roofs built of a molting crown.

    Re: Yeah, I think that’s what that piece is about. Just a metaphor for life.
