Already a Poem

ArboretumArt

You are already a poem,
Big as a whale’s song,
Small as a whisper of an ant.
A scribble in my notebook
Impossible to decipher.
Many tried to figure you out,
to chase you, hold you, lock you
in the jar full of June bugs.

You are already a poem,
born in mystery,
Floating without destination,
small Sea Heart bean on ocean waves.
Soaking up salt and sun
You change with seasons,
hibernate, bud, blossom and wilt…

You are already a poem.
We close dreamy eyes
To hear your verses in silence,
Blowing away on milkweed fuzz.
Yet you are never gone
You’ll sing with the winds
Long after we feed hunger of earth.

      Thank you for commenting! Glad you liked it, although I think I stole it from a friend who once said “a breath of a lacewing” which I liked, and that somehow turned into a whisper of an ant. šŸ™‚

  3. “to chase you, hold you, lock you
    in the jar full of June bugs.” Like that!
