In the Gum Tree

The photo challenge from Maria at CitySonnet for January’s colours and letters: Starts with the letter K

High up in
the Gum Tree
I saw
a hand
gripping tight
then a bit more
as he
shuffled about
in the fork
of the Gum Tree.

Koala was awake
in the Gum Tree
Looking around
watching
wondering
what had woken
him from his
sleep.

Oh dear
he thought.
It’s just that bloke
the one with
a camera
Nothing to be
alarmed about.
Now bugger off
I need my sleep190120_blog_challenge_letter_k_koala3

These photos were taken in my besties front yard bush garden. The previous owner planted some trees that Koalas can feed and sleep in. Koalas sleep a lot of the time and are nocturnal generally. When he is in the trees, he can be heard calling, a sound you can never forget.

Here is sound a cute Koala makes
