Unwanted Interruption

Sometimes, there is poetry in everything I see,

everything I breathe.

Images become words

that blend together and become prose.


Tree trunks so damp they look charred,

a wet Brown that climbs upward,

boosting Reds and Yellows

until they have enough reach to touch Blue.


And then I stop breathing.


Pulled from my pretension.

My overly romantic reverie,

to notice, startled

a wasp nest hanging above my head.


I pass it quickly

and hope

that I may still be able to find myself

in nature once again.


But it’s too late now,

and I’ve already gone too far.

I can no longer hear the whispers of the wasps

as I leave them far behind.
