summer {poetry thursday}

 
























hummingbird at the bee balm
gone as soon as it arrives

sun-warmed berries bursting
eyes close in reverie

and the over-burdened tomatoes
break their bonds
to lean across the aisle
and consort with the kale

a forest appears
where once fingers of asparagus
had sprouted

cultivation makes nature no less wild

  4. I love this. Clearly I need to stop by here much more often, especially on Thursday! :)

    1. Haha, thanks! I'm glad you like it. :) Just so you know, I've fallen into the habit of alternating poetry thursday with wordless wednesday, so there won't be a poem every Thursday!
