The World Is A Busy Place

Green pines laugh in the breeze,
Red lilies grin in the rain,
Squirrels jump to a race,
Satellites launch to outer space.
Z Z z z z….
See who is napping in woods,
M M m m m…
Discover beauty in nature’s truth;
Seasons of changes,
Shifts of gears;
Ebbs and flows of growth,
The conquer of fears;
Live Life in FREE verse,
Experiment poetry in reverse;
The world is a busy place,
Let’s embrace and re-measure our pace.

  4. how refreshingly done…in free verse.
    love the onomatopoeia in ZZzzz and Mmmm

    and the Live Life in FREE (almost jumps out) verse.

    season's of change as a shift of gears….cool trope.

    nicely done. good job.

  16. This just lurches ambiently along in its own lazy way, making the reader feel relaxed and happy with the world.
    What a skill that is!
    The little clouds in the blue sky of the page helps ;-)

    Nature ... strong in every season.

  42. Hi Morning,

    This one works for me really well. I like the juxtaposition of the natural and the mechanical/technological, and the conclusion suggesting, as I understand it, to check in and find a more balanced pace.

    Thanks again for reading and commenting on so much of my poetry. I really appreciate it.
