Fats here.

Are you into nature? I came across this really neat poem by Joan Graham a couple of weeks ago. It’s a clever play on words with beautiful imagery. Hope you like it!

Poetry Friday round-up is hosted today by Franki and Mary Lee at A Year of Reading!

Nature Knows Its Math

by Joan Graham


Divide
the year
into seasons,
four,
subtract
the snow then
add
some more
green,
a bud,
a breeze,
a whispering
behind
the trees,
and here
beneath the
rain-scrubbed
sky
orange poppies
multiply.
