Another Whirled Piece: Gardening in Days of Awe

Malvaviscus arboreus 'Dwarf Pink' Turk's Cap

When night temps can get raw
And politics can get steamy,
You stop by the less-traveled road
And drop your travel-less load,
Returning to life, garden-dreamy

Argiope aurantia near the end of her days

In days of awe
Argiope draws short straw
Of life and so shall we
If taking the Road to Damascus
Causes the world to task us
With rebuilding the whole Middle E

Love Bugs Make It On the Big Screen

In days of awe
A red-line faux pas--
Does a line in the sand really make it all right?
If truly we care for the future--we do have choices--
Let’s unravel each stitch of the suture
That’s bound up our voices
And so end this fight

In days of awe
Imagine the law
That captures the world’s attention
It frees us to act
With love, mercy—not blindly react—
Finally, at-one-ment(ion).


  1. Dear Walk2write,
    that is a very interesting written poem - thank you! Of course I looked the links up. And yes: one hopes that everything will turn out right.

  2. Claude, you're welcome. It was heartfelt.

    Britta, I'm glad that you liked it and that the links were helpful. The news today sounded more hopeful.

    Thanks, Julie!

  3. Lovely photos! (Even of the bugs and the spider!) Is that a rose in the first picture? Lovely.

  4. Thanks, Christi. Bugs and spiders abound at this time of the year in Florida so they tend to make their way onto the blog more often than not. The first pic is of a type of mallow (in the hibiscus family). The hummingbirds and butterflies adore it, but I haven't been fortunate enough to capture any of them on a visit. Or if I do, it's just a blur. Glad you stopped by.

  5. A witty poem and fabulous bug photos!

  6. Does a line in the sand really make it all right?.......
    worth pondering.

  7. Thanks, Sarah. A serious subject presented with a little poetic levity makes a bigger impression on me when I read it, so I thought why not write it as such?

    Haddock, I figured you would find it worthy of pondering.

  8. We can't keep our eyes off from what's going on. I just hope and pray things will turn out right with the collected wisdom and love of world leaders.
    The glow of the spider near the end of her days is beautiful.

  9. Love the photo of the spider! I looked up a couple of the references--how can I be this old and not know what "The Days of Awe" are?? It sounds as though we are not going to "blindly react" after all, for which I'm glad.

    Great poem--you always make me think, W2W, which is what good poetry should do!

  10. Nicely Written my friend with beautiful photos abound. Love seeing Peanut by Twilights Glow....

  11. Love the poem and the photos!
    I have always admired that you are very observant. What you've noticed while gardening are cool! I particularly like the last photo. The two bugs on the screen look like a piece of art. A really nice shot!
