we blossom just like
the flowers of the fields

as they begin their unfolding
we too are transformed
by their loveliness

mesmerized by their colorful
and ever radiant displays

we become lost in the
intricacies of each
miraculous new birth

finding ourselves
unable to exhale

stood statue still in
reverence and awe

praying silently that we don’t
upset the serenity
of such wondrous splendor

capturing in our minds what
we could never fully recreate
on our own

we remain in that still and
silent state of being

consumed by the lush
confines of such exquisite

and we are once again
renewed by the unveiling
of new life

    1. Thanks so much, Jeff. The inspiration for this poem came to me today after reading several poems; one of them being yours. I love it when the chain reaction of thoughts gets me moving. Nature is always my biggest inspiration of all and I just pictured standing in the midst of a field of flowers, consumed by the serenity and beauty found there. Thanks for helping to motivate my mind. 💫☺️
