Full circle

Glistening like 
the eyes of a 
newborn —
green to 
the world —
the naive tree
with leaves
wide open.

Cottonwood 
branches bash
against the 
clouds —
seed stuffing
floats down —
Nature’s 
pillow fight. 

Overcast 
morning —
the worms’
alarm set

on snooze —
the early 
bird gets 
irritable.

The 
mighty
feline 
returns —
proud 
of her 
successful 
hunt —
dead
shrew
on the 
doormat.

The poem
I never wrote —
a seed buried 
so deep —
no sun to
coax its 
growth —
in the limbo 
of creation.

Countless 
poetrees
growing 
under 
our feet —
lifting the 
world to
higher 
ground —
our heads in
the clouds.

All walks of life
passing us by —
the vultures fly
full circle.

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! I’m so glad you find my poems uplifting 😊

      Under the shade of a tree
      I sit peaceful and silent
      inseparable as a shadow.

      I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and all the best in the week ahead!
