via Daily Prompt: Pillage

The flowers in my garden

bloomed to the full,

attracting a flight of

butterflies to jointly

form a panoply of colours

inviting a pandemonium

of parrots, a dray of squirrels

and a host of sparrows

to complete the crew,

the peace and harmony

of this little kingdom was

not long to be,

a cyclone’s fury pillaged and

plundered their shelter

and making them homeless,

when I was shaking with grief

and no action,I noticed with wonder

those cute little beings help each

other construct their new homes,

Nature has both hope and despair

tucked within itself,

what we see is the choice of us……..
