Design by nature

Design by nature

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

I caught a perfect raindrop, sitting upon the petal of a succulent.


Design by nature

 

 

a dulcet rain

begins to fall

 

an orb

of absolute precision

is meticulously cupped within

the concave petal of

a succulent

 

unequivocally designed

by nature.

I always believed that poetry and nature go hand in hand and this magnificent poem is a perfect example of that. I believe, too, that an artist could create this lovely image from your words alone. Simply breathtaking, Kelly.

Believe me, Pete, I am ever proud of this one! Thank you for telling me what it meant to you!
Reading your words brought to light so much joy that flows around us in the world, too often neglected by weary eyes. Your thoughts are simply stunning.

Pretty much knocked me over! ...many thanks, Ted!
It was said that nature knew before it designed anything how form would shape its world. Like a poem unwritten living in the soul awaiting its day of arrival.

Love,
Al

A most lovely analogy...thank you, Alfred!
metaphorically speaking I had visions of a sweat drops falling on cupped breasts, for breasts and succulents are both smooth and nice to look at and are both by design! lovely write!
