Disconnections: July 17.18

5 Comments

In elephantine pirouette

I dance around my deck

bending, leaning, stretching

twisting leg and neck

camera poised and ready

in effort all agley’d

to capture in mid-flight

a wispy floating seed.

It can’t be seen by others

observers might be flummoxed

wondering what I’m chasing

delusional and lummoxed.

I cannot get a focus

on ary single one

the geranium sighs and whispers

I’ll show you how it’s done:

you stay quite still and quiet

don’t let on you care

and it will come to you

like silvery tickly air.

  1. Hope your geraniums are doing well. I must say mine are loving this hot and humid weather. 🙂

    • My geraniums would be doing well were it not for the attack of the Japanese beetles. I’ve read that they don’t like geraniums. HA. They like everything! But, yes, this is great weather for geraniums.

  2. That’s how it is in life sometimes with the things we are chasing.
