Pondering Wondering

As I walked I saw many things,
things one wouldn’t see

walking down a bustling city sidewalk

Out in the country the birds

sang the most beautiful songs

the sky, so vividly blue

and spotted with puffy white clouds

a sprinkler dribbled drops of crisp

refreshing cold water

as the sweltering summer heat beat down upon my face;

Just then a butterfly flew past and I was dumbfounded

by the baffling blue wings with a bold black outline.
The beauty of the world around us is astounding,
yet we destroy it and build cities instead.
