My Cart 


This Moment
Lauren McBride


Sitting beside my garden,
the bills on my lap      forgotten,
too busy this moment
watching bees and butterflies
trading flowers.

Like the way the shape of the poem adds to the subject of the poem.

One of the few "modern" poems that actually seems to work. Thank goodness.
