School swimming lessons remembered

That little schoolboy

petrified and insecure;

a bully teacher.

Butterflies in his tummy

and mental paralysis.

Blessing and a curse

 

What separates us

from the animal kingdom

is our compassion.

 

My heart weeps for a fledgling

too sickly to carry on.

  • In a garden hedge in my road, this small ball of fluff was hiding its head from this scary world under its wing. Obviously recently fledged and confused its liklihood of survival are pretty low. It showed no signs of response to noise and will be an easy target for cats or foxes of which there are a great many in the neighbourhood. It was heartbreaking. No sign of its parents.
