micropoem for the day: paying attention

Sometimes I wonder if Mother Nature isn’t showing off just for me. Yesterday, as I drove back and forth to work, I got to glance at some of her works in progress. There was that bird singing out her birdsong blues. There were those ants marching back and forth, working like there was no tomorrow. There were some flowers of various colors lifting their buds up in praise of the sun. Sometimes I wonder if they are not dancing and their feet are going around in such slow motion, I can’t see the motion. And that moon over yonder ain’t no slacker. This gig on Planet Earth can be such a delight.

trees line the street
their branches arch
shadows fall like leaves
in autumn
