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.

The author's comments:
I was inspired by the past couple years in my life to write this poem. I have lived in the city and basically in corn fields. There is so much to love about the city, but the natural beauty of the world around us far exceeds anything a city could offer.
