PLANNED.


Soft rain bubbles a sole
blade of swaying shivery grass
that braves life by dancing as self.  

 

Thistledown light it quietly
writhes with buoyant head high
on strenuous stalk defying the wet.

 

Where are your veins and
what holds your filmy life-force
together in such delicate threads ?

 

With gossamer frame first
shaped in fine fibrous tendrils      
what makes you face all weathers ?  

 

You, seed-full wonder were,
I believe planned by intelligence
only Heavenly invention possesses.

              I have so many times thought of writing about a blade of grass and how sturdy they really are. Much has not been said about the exotic smell of a fresh cut grass and the thrill of rolling around in it.

              Thnx for this poem

                Not many people know, but all grains are form of grasses and even the bamboo is just a huge stalk of grass.

                • Fay Slimm

                  Thanks Suresh for the visit the read and this comment - - - a stalk of grass is a true wonder for its sturdiness and inner resilience - - your reminder of the exotic smell of cut grass brings in another aspect to this awesome subject and which deserves its own tribute - - - such fun to roll in too. - -hoping to see your offering soon.
