‘Little ones’ of our Natural World

Hummingbird

Bone-china lightness
like fanning rainbow paper.
Speared probes drink nectar

Goldcrest

Miniscule plumpness
royally crowned in orange-gold
trills to splinter glass

Pipestrelle Bat

High-pitched sound wave; in
minute dusk navigation.
Flight of stretched membrane

(minute – adj form)

Little Owl

Disc- miniature face,
brows stern. Diurnal friend of man
bobs when disquieted

Storm Petrel

Dots of splattered ink
Hunt seafood with dancing feet.
Roost in midnight dark

Dik- Dik

Diminutive limbs
hold graceful bodies; alert
always for Cheetah
