(Inspired by AB25 and BB25)
All Around Us
above the treetop green
reflects the earth below
where jays flitter
and robins sing,
and each puddled rock
holds worlds within,
swimming in light,
hidden in umbra,
dream boundless dreams.

Got ‘Merril’ at the first line 🙂
That phrase starting ‘each puddled rock…’ is just gorgeous!

That first line would have to be one of us.
Oh, my goodness! What a lovely poem to read on a spring day…
Thank you so much, Linda! 😊
I like the way it starts wide and then focuses small. I too like puddled rock. (K)
Thank you so much, Kerfe!
Your poem brings to mind Blake’s grain of sand. It’s an idea I’m very much drawn to.
Thank you very much, Liz!
