Earth Day

This is not a poem
This is the quiet unfurling
Of a green seedling

This is not a poem
This is a raindrop, hanging,
Quivering jewel

This is not a poem
This is the wild leap and spin
Of a grey dolphin

This is not a poem
This is clear river water
Running to the sea

This is not a poem
This is the hare’s free running
Zig zag down the lane

This is not a poem
This is the great, green silence
Of a noon forest

  1. A delightful list poem. I love ‘This is not’ and the lines:
    ‘This is the quiet unfurling
    Of a green seedling’
    and
    ‘This is the hare’s free running
    Zig zag down the lane’.
    A breath of fresh air and the simple life!
