Fabergé Egg

Standing on the tile outside
In the sun

Wondering if the specks in

The tile are meaningful-

Wondering if there is

Some giant living thing

Staring down

Upon me-

A Small bug lands

On my toe

& Tickles my toe hair-

I bend down
Blow it off-

When - Suddenly - There's
A frightful gust of

Wind that pushes
Me off balance/

Hurricane Hercules

Knocks me over
& I feel as if

I'm just a layer of

The Fabergé Egg-

    Aren't we just so fragile, we human creatures who think we are so sturdy and strong, so all powerful and yet so very vulnerable..................... no stronger than most creatures, certainly not as strong as resilient as some bacteria that is microscopic, unseen by our eyes but felt in our bodies....whoops I'm rhyming again :)))) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
