A to Z Challenge – The Letter F – April 7, 2016

Fending freely
In fields and forests
Foraging for food
From trees and vines:
Fungi, flowers and fruits
Maybe field mice
Or frogs and fish.
Feasting at times
At others,
Frankly frugal repasts!
Our forefathers
Fended for millennium thus!
Following food with the seasons
Frightened sometimes freezing.
First feeble weapons were fashioned
Then fire was fabricated
Finally farms were founded
Furnishing families with food
In abundance!
But fatally
Fortifications, fratricide and fallacious fantasies
Of supposed superiority
Followed forthwith;
Filthying men’s minds,
Undermining faithful friendships,
Fomenting frustration and felons.
Fine, fine fare thee well!

  1. Fascinated to find you can keep producing magical poem after magical poem like this. And another perfectly matched illustration–a cave painting? Lascaux? Which comes first–the illustration or the poem? Or does it vary?
    Thanks for taking the trouble to visit me. Greatly appreciated.

  2. This is the style of poetry I read when I first visited your blog…lovely, description of life of long ago and inspired by that painting. Brava, cara, beautifully penned. x
