Like the Weeds

Like the Weeds

Like the weeds that
dance within the embrace of
summer breezes.

Tree frogs that
remain hidden in plain site
within the scope of vigilant predators.

Great white egret
in magnificent flight
at water’s edge.

Leopard in his tree
feasting upon his latest kill.

Termite queen
immobilized by an abdomen
filled with the promise of
future generations.

Humans move along
wondrous planet earth
finite, mortal and enfeebled by time
yet filled with a disconcerting
sense of entitlement.
