Undone


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
