Microcosm

The longer I looked the more I saw
Bits of grey dotted with green
Green pushed to pink
Pink with yellow centers
Beetles skittering, flies bumbling
Pollen transfers
Little bits of dirt settling here, there
A seed dropped, fell to its side
Mouse whiskers then a sleek body
Tiptoeing a paw flips a leaf over
Brushing past a ripe mushroom
Spores release
Float and dance across the still air
Then a breath, a breeze whispers
Dispersal, new life awaiting

  1. This is very nice. You really captured one of the things I like best about being out in the natural world- there is so much going on around us that doesn’t include or need us. It’s a good time to lose our bloated ego.

  2. Mouse whiskers then a sleek body…

    I legitimately laughed from pleasure at that line 🙂 I love it!
