“The beauty of the natural world lies in the details.”
~ Natalie Angier ~
Today is Earth Day. I wanted to write a poem specifically to commemorate that, but trying to write a poem about the whole Earth overwhelmed me. Then I remembered this photo from an Arizona Highways desk calendar. The beauty is in the details.
Cradled like newly hatched
through the jaws of an agave,
weaving their blossoms
between its toothy thorns.
