War of the Worlds (sonnet)

In this lovely world I call my own,
Viewed at this moment through my soiled toes,
Unrelenting beauty of the Spring
Lulls my senses through eyes, ears and nose.
This book is written well, its characters
Developed well; its plot lines interweave
Into a text appealing to the mind
Enough to make me read well and believe.
And yet my eye is constantly caught by
The hosta leaves applauding Spring’s warm breeze,
The dogfights over nesting space, the song
Of water flowing and the buzz of bees.
I love the worlds in books but, after all,
One inchworm in the Spring outshines them all.

    Such a sweet thimble-full, Jane. I love it, especially, “The host of leaves applauding Spring’s warm breeze.” Thank you.
