Reflections of reflection

mirrored magnificence

buildings reach for the sky

glass and steel perfection

amid marbled elegance

so many stories high

the juxtaposition

creates a lovely composition

hold tightly

Chicago Botanic Garden: Picture by Gigi See Original

β™₯

she possesses softness and beauty
and remembers to hold them tightly
surrounding herself with love
and enveloping her soul with kindness
because while you should always be kind to others
it is equally important to be kind to yourself
and sometimes harder to do

~Poem by me

Melanie Thomason

White flower from the Chicago Botanic Garden

Another flower picture from Gigi and the resulting micropoetry from me πŸ™‚

I see a little girl, named
Sunshine (or Sunny for short)
with her blonde hair
in pigtails
and big blue eyes
gleaming mischievously
as she plays hopscotch
in her starched
white dress

Flower…Chicago Botanic Garden (today)

This gorgeous flower from Gigi prompted a micro poem from me so I had to reblog πŸ™‚

Here is the poem:

blossoms
blush prettily
as they unfold
their supple petals
to cradle wee fae folk
as they sleep
