Day 12: My Lily Pad
copyright Lindamichellebaron 2020
My Lily Pad
Sometimes, I sit in back of my just-right house
in the middle of my just-right back yard
with my very own fish pond
the sun turn green lily pods
into a pads of floating pastel petals.
I feel so special
when I see the lily pads
open themselves up
and close themselves tight
like they want to play hide and seek
I can catch the sun
using its rays like a baton to
direct the lily petals into a silent dance
for an audience of me.
My Lily Pad is one of my favorite poems from my personal treasure trove of poems.
Hope you enjoyed Day 12. To book me:
Love and realness,
