Backyard Meditation


Creature so great
Creature so small.
So enticing to see them all.
I could spend the day transfixed.
Grace in their gathering.
Discipline in their gait.
Hero to the backyard.
Nothing in there is of waste.
If I had chance to name one, or two, or three.
That would over simplify my needs.
For I am only human.
And, these creatures of the backyard…
Live beyond anything I know.
They do not look at life with such disregard.
