When I Heard Those Chickens


I got up early
Set off down the road
With Jen and our dogs
Like we do every morning..

Well heading back
Along my path
I could hear
Those Chickens
A sound, nearly
Like a wailing blues


Well I thought of that hen
And a vine I'd passed
The way it hung
Right over the wire
An then just why..
I couldn't shut my mouth?

this poem must have a personal hidden meaning for you, jen, and the chickens - it will keep me pondering the meaning for some time to come :0)

I sense that you live in a type of paradise, sometimes memories of country life call to me; I don't answer that call too often. City slicker I am now. lovely! :)

Let's be perfectly clear- the war on free speech is spiritual!
