Nature Always Finds a Way

In the hedgerow,
a robin spills its joy
at weeds and wildflowers
unfurling and greening
cracks in the pavement,
graveyards and verges.
It cocks its head
and blinks its eye
at a trembling of finches in the sky
with flashes of yellow
and bursts of twittering.
Nature always finds a way:
midsummer’s insects
are only days away.

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Poetics: Life Lessons, also shared on Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Tuesday Platform

Mish, our host for this Tuesday, has decided to do something a little different for this week’s Poetics by creating a ‘sequel’ to her last prompt, ‘I Am Learning Still’. She has also shared quotes and poems to inspire us to write our own poems of advice and share our knowledge. She asks us to write about something that we have learned that we feel could change another life or at least improve it; to imagine if we knew then what we know now.

  1. I enjoyed reading this, Kim. Seems that Mother Nature will always have her way.. Coming summer is announced by it harbingers, the Robing and the Finches. Around here towards the end of Spring come also the Woodpeckers.

  2. Nature is so patient and logical, much more than we are sometimes. A great teacher!
    I like these phrases…”graveyards and verges” and “bursts of twittering”.
