Camera:NIKON D3000

In the garden

I watch intently

two love birds

proclaim their love

to the world.


A poor worm am I

in the garden

with nobody to sing

love songs to.


Maybe I should chew

more fresh leaves

for tomorrow no longer a worm

but a beautiful butterfly

I would be…


Oh glorious day I wait for thee!

too long had the cocoon buried me!

into that wondrous splendor of light

let my soul emerge from the shadows of night.

  1. now that is so sweet and different to read a poem about nature so sweet indeed. i love that poem this is what poetry is all about writing things that we see believe and think about too .well done beautiful poem.the love of life in all its beauty .

  2. I love the playful/wistful shift into end rhyme of the last stanza. Its like the slowly falls into antiquity; maybe its a refuge for the speaker? Or it almost has the feel of a mantra, a spell, or a star light, star bright wish poem to it. Great stuff. This is a skillfully written love poem.

    • Thank you for the great comment and the expert eye! Yes, it’s a refuge and a resolute desire to soar with the vision,to rise above the challenges of the seasons and to wait patiently with joy and expectant hope in every life’s journey 🙂
