Mouse in the House #99WSP

It has always amazed me: Critters around the house

A childhood fav, was this little mammal: The mouse

Every Spring and Fall, we heard just one shuffle

On the attic, where it cleanly slept, without scuffle

There were no others than this one tidy mouse

Later, I encountered more than one mice filled house

It didn’t make me loose sympathy for the mouse

It’s a gentle spirit; at home, it’s relatively harmless

In a domestic environment, it may cause minor stress

Where The Wind Carries Us

At nighttime, you may see stars dead since millennia

Its sound in the foliage brings me back decades

I heard the same whisper, when walking to school

Wind brings us back to history and to nature

Maybe indeed wind reminds us of our very core

First Flight

The colleagues had placed a webcam near the crest

On the factory’s rooftop, the family feels safe enough

Peregrine falcons, unlike before, have become common these days

The youngsters had grown big enough to fly now

The parents just kick them out of the nest

Some of them, just drop down and don’t fly

The colleagues take loving care of the confused youngster

Quickly, a falcon video and some photos were made

Then, one of the colleagues brought the youngster upstairs

Alas, same routine was repeated to the young falcon

The colleagues never found out, how the story ended
