A-Z Challenge. Letter F – Flowing Tales


River Nene flows
Through natural
Reserve where
Peaceful life is
Never disturbed.
Nene swells,
Reeds tangle, shaking
Their heads,
Telling tales of sailing boats
Sweeping down river,
Wind swollen mainsail
Enjoying power of nature’s flow.

Dryads eggs hatching

Strokes and scribbles
Chisel out ancient tales
Like the lines on a human hand.

Dryads’ families lives
Imprinted on beautiful bark
Wrapped around the groaning oak.


Dryads’ eggs disguised as nodules, pulsate
And warm,
Sparkling eyes watching from
Dusk till dawn until
Time for rebirth.
