Vijay Sai

Little Kingdom

Agile ants building colonies
Busy bees buzzing honey hives
Beetle bugs grinding green leaves
Brown butterflies feasting on flowers
Crawling caterpillars sticking under reefs
Energetic earthworms easing into sand and soil
Freaky frogs making croaking sounds
Green grasshoppers hopping plant to plant
Lengthy leeches racing here and there
Mystery millipedes moving in millimeters
Steady snails sneaking into shells
Spirited spiders weaving cobwebs
All these wonderful species
Adorn my garden
A little kingdom, altogether!

    Vijay,

    First of all thank you for inviting me to read this piece, it really is a wonderful and truthful way of expressing the realisation that your garden is truly a little kingdom, as much goes on in it as in our own human part of this planet and you have expressed it marvellously in your writing.
    Great work and I will be adding you to my friends list now to see what else your pen creates
    Peace
    Jon

    Some nice imagery used and with such a brief insight it asks for more expansion. Well versed overall.

    Unfortunately many city dwellers are locked and jailed between concrete floors in cramped Flat, unable to see even sun at anytime in a day. They can at least enjoy this poem. Nice kingdom. Convey my best wishes to the subjects of your little kingdom.

    Lovely poem! You are lucky to have such a wonderful kingdom, we miss sights like these in a city like Delhi...

    such colorful and happy imagery nature is. Your poem is like a nature shot taken by a natural artist. Thank you,

    So that was of birds, now insects - this poem has covered more in numbers of the world of insects. If that was world of wings then this is a little kingdom of insects on earth. A poem of your good observation.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Gautam

    Descriptive poem but nice to read. It seems that poet is a lover of Nature, even the lives of small insects are observed carefully.But I prefer to feel the inner poetic feelings of the poem...Thanks..

    Dear Vijay I noticed that u like to link this poem to 'World Of wings' and I think that is because of the perfectly elaborated, poetic and skilled writing of both poems! The little kindom has become an animal opus so natural and so original, all at once!


    Good luck,
    Jihene

    it is very creative i agree.. so many little details which is good for poems describing things such as your 'garden' or you 'little kingdom'
