Evolving Emotions: Surprise- Poetry

A Wonderous Day

 

Sun’s rays force squinting eyes

Grass curls between tiny toes

Laughter swirling in air swept

by each cool breeze

Bubbling waters in the pond

dug by able hands

for fish and shelled creatures

to lay and unwind

 

Tingling hands

A shift in the air

Heads turning in unison

to the house just across the yard

 

Rushing past familiar beauty

towards an enthralling mystery

behind four walls

 

Once inside

figures crowded round

blocking view

 

Some gasp or shriek of glee

at a sight to behold

 

In the center of the circle

comes barking

Pushing past

there it is

the dog you will know

for years to come

 

It will touch your life

in a way only it could

But for now,

you gaze in its eyes

and marvel over this wonderous surprise
