Sunday sonnet

With a stern sounding voice, I call, “Right now!”
I tap twice on the garden’s picket fence.
Chicks run and wiggle back inside somehow.
The space between the slats to them immense.

They run back home a little quicker still.
This third or fourth time that they snuck…



Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
