Minuscule Magnificence

Mower engine stopped

at the sight of movement

in a patch of wild,

human stoops low

to observe

from a different perspective

for a while…


What intricate patterns and details!

What interesting coloring…

Magnificent minuscule creature,

you are quite lovely!


Hop along now!

Hop elsewhere to safety.

With lens and mind’s eye,

I’ve captured your beauty.


I think time has been frozen

during our rendezvous,

another mindful escape

through the portal of

a different view,


and to think I may have missed

the opportunity to be infused

with another dose of soulful bliss

on this gorgeous May afternoon…
