Newness

ST LEONARDS

New year,

New month,

New day,

Clean and crisp.

New thoughts,

New chances,

New achievements,

A chance to change.

No looking back,

No dwelling on the past.

Just looking forward,

to all that is about

to Unfold

Contagious Beams

Shaking with excitement

Huge smiles upon your faces

You both jump up and down

Your natural happiness coats me

 

We enter the enclosure

Beautiful green birds flying around us

One of you shy’s away,

you don’t take the necta,r you watch

 

Birds land on my arm,

pecking at the beaker of nectar

your eyes widen,

your smile is slightly apprehensive

 

your brother takes the beaker

birds flock onto his arms

he is amazed at holding so many

worried at the sharpness of their claws

 

You both find it hard to relax

its perfectly natural for you to feel this way

The nectar is finished, we leave the area

the beams across your faces are infectious

 

you both chatter 19 to the dozen

the experience was new and exciting

you forget your nerves,

and quite rightly revel in your achievements.
