It's just poetry, it won't bite

Nature’s Parade

It
is no secret that nature inspires great poetry. It speaks to our primal
side, takes us back to our origins, and enlivens our language with
color, feeling, and energy. We are one week into autumn and in some
places of these United States, the signs of the season are hard to
miss. The leaves are changing, the air is crunchy, the light looks less
dense, the Halloween candy is beckoning! Karen Schindler is a natural
for primal writing. You already know this because you’ve read and loved
undiscovered and Coming Home, and, quite possibly, her entertaining blog. So whether you’re knee-deep in fall or basking in postseason summer, read this poem and revel in the autumnal equinox.


Nature’s Parade

brilliant confetti
discards
of arms
reaching to the
spun candy
clouds
breathtakingly vibrant
when
carelessly littered
on
glistening
wet shelves
forsaking
life
to beautifully nourish
the
ever-hungry
earth
