Wonder

The gracefulness of demeanor
The delicate way of birds
Contrasting to survival's way
So brutish and absurd

Following the patterns
Of trees and leaves and flowers
Thinking like a river
Contemplating things for hours

Feeling textures distant
Seeing taste and sound
Noticing the difference
Between hunting and the hound

-Kelly Voelker


brutish - coarse, cruel, stupid

wonder - a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable
