Day 22: Earth Day

Never stopped to smell the roses

Or to notice how white blossom petals

Blown in the wind, are

Caught up by the earth –


Speeding from moment to moment

Until I tripped and fell

Caught up by the earth –

Salubrious speed bump

  1. I love those last two lines–that sudden “bump” to contrast with the earlier “floweriness.” 🙂

  2. Those first few lines are so soft, like a summer breeze. I also like the repetition of “caught up by the earth” – it shows all the different ways we take it for granted until we find ourselves face-to-face with it.
