Crossroads

Crossroads

they roll along

green highways

in glass bubbles

observation cars

cast in chlorophyll

rich with ribosome

pausing at the

junction of leaf

petiole and stem

looking both ways

reflecting a

thousand eyes

NaPoWriMo #29

I’m writing a poem every day in April as part of NaPoWriMo’s celebration of National Poetry Month. Won’t you join me in poetry?

  1. This is one of my favorites. The photo is remarkable as is the careful wording. To see so much in something so little — what a poet’s eye at work here. There is a smoothness to the wording and an undulation that echoes the contours in the photo. “..leaf petiole and stem” has such a gentle up-and-down to it.

    I am sorry there is only one more poem for this month, though you will probably be glad to rest your camera and quill pen. You’ve given me a lot of inspiration — thank you!
