I thought I heard a hiccup
From a pigeon in my vine
Then noticed first the white grapes
Then the red we use for wine
Had disappeared without a trace
Though yesterday at tea
They were fat juicy round and sweet
Ready to be picked today by me
Then as I studied further
It was to my surprise
I found several berry drunk pigeons
Cooing right before my eyes!
Anna-Marie Docherty lives in Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK and is often inspired by nature and the world around her. Having been writing poetry now for 4 - 5 years, her works have developed in structure and form as well as using free verse in her writing as she walks this endless art form and creativity in her thirst to further learn. Letting the pen and the muse dictate topic and form both humour, religion, nature or the serious subject might be touched upon therefore keeping the writing fresh and easy to read by those who follow. Writing both as given name above and pen name anaisnais through the net, examples of poems can be found both in Snippets, an anthology of short verse by various international poets, compiled by Karen O'Leary and Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson; also Pink Panther magazine, an anthology written by several poets and artists on feminist issues in our environment and various poems on the internet for taster.
