NATURE'S WAY (a poem)

NATURE’S WAY
by
Patricia Crandall

Waterfalls cascading
over sharp, jutting rocks.
Angry rivers rising
in a storm.
Oceans
swelling…swirling
in perpetual motion.
Petals
unfolding in a summer breeze.
Bees
droning by angry swarms.
Trees
bearing pale – pink blossoms
and ripening fruit.
Creatures
burrowing tawny noses into earth.

Granddaughter won third place in contest and I received two honorable mentions.

My granddaughter, Nicole St. Onge, tied for 3rd place with her story: No Guts, No Gory. I'm so proud of her. My two honorable mentions are: HM#19 & 21.
