Nature’s Example #100tpc #poetsforchange


fawn

 

dawn is playing with the color wheel

two does and their young pass

a fawn races toward flowers

nature dances its morning ritual

mothers tilt their heads

large eyes are watchful, hopeful

mesmerized am I in silence

the choir holds its breath

peace as golden rays curve the horizon

a white tail bobs to my left

lingering on a tasty morsel

none push others away

though rib cages bulge

an ear flicks, a buck crosses the road

stately he watches those ahead

worries crease not his brow

equal is the footing

a bird titters a “good morning”

the mamas follow the path

children run in circles

each move to the morning’s cadence

I awaken to a jet piercing the sky

too soon my peace is interrupted

drivers jockey for position to be first

breaks screech as metal bends

reverie is broken

 

 

 

Sharing with the event 100,000 Poets for Change:

For today’s online event, our choice is not to put one of the three themes—peace, sustainability, and social justice—above the others, but to recognize that all of these three necessary areas of change interrelate in complex ways.
