I’ve always heard that pigs might fly
but never knew a cow so high
that it would float among the clouds
and smile on people passing by
just held by tethers to the earth
a cow of such amazing girth
ballooning in the sky
Today it’s quadrille at dVerse, and De wants us to write poetry using the word balloon in a poem with 44 words.
an eruption of guilty birds
in headlong flight
from the grape-vine
racing for the last bus
as they go

Bert came across a whole new kind of animal when we stopped at Matahiwi for a cuppa yesterday. He couldn’t believe his eyes. These little part kunekune pigs happily charge around the local community looking for handouts. They are perfectly safe from being eaten as they keep the visitors happy. The cafeteria is in the old Matahiwi School and I recommend it as a great and friendly place to stop.

A Royal Spoonbill was foraging in the river when we went for our walk yesterday. Unfortunately I didn’t have my zoom lens with me – so this a bit distant.
