Just Outside My Door - Poem by Connie Webb

When I was a kid
I would shout
“Watch out, a bee! ”
Today while admiring the purple flowers
Growing alongside my home
By the deep green grass
I watched this bee doing nothing
But enjoying the flowers like me
He wasn’t a little bee
No, he was a big black bumble bee
It is just that today
I wasn’t scared
And as I watched
Two white butterflies appeared
Having a nice time
Landing on flowers and leaves
And I felt happy
Knowing there is this whole other world
Just outside my door.

    Yes, there are 'Worlds' all around us! Unfortunately, we are often too wrapped up in ours to appreciate them. Beautiful poem!
