30 poems in April

Twenty- one

A single snippet that is overheard
can pierce the heart as cleanly as a sword
At quiet times it creeps back in to haunt
like painful poison seeping slow, to taunt

Twenty two

The tractor hums, the plough smooth furrows groove
as earth is turned, small creatures scurry, move
their lives disturbed by farmer's need to hoe
preparing ground for seeds that he will sow
each action that he takes affects the land
most good but some may also be unplanned
as habitats may change or disappear
some animals and birds have much to fear
