Monday’s Poem

Tiggy Winkle

Crinkle, crackle, rustle
My tiny feet tread lightly over the
Unswept debris of the garden
During my twilight search for a
Fat juicy slug

Snuffle, scratch, prickle
I push the roundness of myself
Through next door’s hedge
To claim my cat food feast in a
Dish labelled ‘Spike’

This gorgeous hedgehog poem was sent in by Jane and was inspired by last week’s Connect to Nature Writing Class, which had the theme of Heavenly Hedgehogs!

I love the opening lines which make great used of alliteration, and the lovely imagery of a hedgehog snuffling along from one garden to the next! Superb!

This week I am away on leave, but look out for the writing class which is pre-scheduled and will give you some fun tasks to do while I am away! Hope you enjoy!

Best wishes
