Donations are essential to keep Write Out Loud going    


Black white black white

alternating stripes

difffuse the sun


Through the umbrella pongee

I see oak-tree leaves

and a scurrying ladybug 


A morning bird monologues so loud 

he's scared or proud

like Noah announcing the flood


A spider meticulously crafts

her silky sleek webs, shimmering traps

stretched out by the breeze for blood


Lizards do pushups with a color display

pompously winning a mate

without chasing romance or love


Bees prance on pollen

and hummingbirds sip serum

from deep indigo buds


It's an untamed ecology

reflecting unashamed beauty

in my backyard, undone
