Starling squawks,

sparrow cheeps,
song thrush sings
bee buzzes,

plane drones ‘cross
cloudless sky,
summer’s here! 


Cloudless skies,
sweet mown grass,
sprinkler swish.

Lie with you,
cuddle in,
steal a kiss!  

happiness -
salad days!


steaks, chicken
sizzle spit,

odours waft,
fill the air.
Magic taste,

charcoal grilled,
tummy filled
Yum!  Yum!  Yum!

Marion at Real Toads has us writing Tricube’s.  Each Tricube should have three syllables per line, three lines per stanza and three stanzas’ per poem.

So above is a little trio of them.

We were enjoying the evening, even to cuddle and kisses. But surprise! You took us to a BBQ after that, leave us hanging, where to after for the young ones?
