Little Thoughts
Little Thoughts

It seems I have entered my minimalist phase. Having finished my daily offering of a poem for Express It In Eight, I decided to bash out a few reviews. This took me to Read & Review but, before I could find anything that demanded my review, I was waylaid by a photograph of a very large sunflower.

Being as contrary as I am, my mind immediately transported me to those tiny flowers one sees sometimes in the undergrowth or on a background of moss in shadowed areas. I was moved to write a poem to one such humble and diffident creature.

This turned out to be a very small poem to a tiny aspect of nature and I chose the font accordingly (thereby making a sarcastic comment on all shape poems but I doubt anyone will notice that).

It was in placing the poem in my folder for Poetry 2021, that I noticed that I appeared to be following a theme. The last poem before this one happens to be entitled Dwarf Planet. Clearly, I have discovered a penchant for the very small.
