Curiosity got the best of me this morning. I google a haibun but only an excited and active bee is revealed. Viral thoughts occupying space dissolve into nothingness as soothing sounds take precedence. The contagion that shakes and shapes our world continues to demand respect yet a simple act of moving my body allows me to rediscover the miracle that is spring.
earthling among trees
bears witness to life as the
green, sunny earth buzzes
note: It’s funny how this poem, a special feature for Rommy’s prompt, came about. If like me, you’ve always been curious about Google’s Doodles that mark special dates, now go ahead and find out what today is.
This is what I did early this morning. Google didn’t only remind me that it is Earth Day but really made me smile with this delightful video. And as we know a smile changes everything.
Btw, last year, NASA said earth is greener than it was 20 years ago. That alone is a reason to smile, even though climate action remains one of the biggest challenges. So, Happy Earth Day! 🙂
