The Cloth People

Looking In

Like the Chinese terra cotta army
These cloth wrapped creatures
Seem to guard buildings
In the neighbourhood

Facing the windows
They check on those inside
Standing faithfully at their posts
All the winter long

The Cloth Figures

I dare not pass this diminutive gang
Constantly on the watch
Strength in numbers
They seem to say.


Not all seem pleased
with their assignments
As they huddle in a corner
Caught in conversation

The weather is warming
Soon they will throw off their disguises
And stretch their branches up towards the sun
To enjoy the new growth of spring

I have featured wrapped bushes before on my blog.
You can see some here and here
