Musings in the Backyard

Hello, fellow Mumblers! Firstly, I’m so sorry for this late post which was supposed to go up yesterday but better late than never. So, here we go. 😅😄

The pandemic has forced all of us to be enclosed in our homes and I’m fortunate enough to be near mother nature even at this time. With all the free time I had, ( but still couldn’t put up a post smh) I sat in the backyard, just looking around. What revelations nature made to me in those few moments are penned below. Enjoy! Much love!❤

There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it.

The sunlight slithers through the dense canopy of leaves

And dances on the ground with each sigh of the wind


A tiny bulbul perches on the parapet and calls out

Fearlessly interrrupting my morning reverie


With its chest thrust out

And a handsome crown

The red whiskers, fit for a clown


An old, weary leaf gently falls from above

And onto the ground, where it shall be buried


It’s funny how nature seems to join the earth upon death

While we the mortal humans, still think of our souls floating to the heavens above.
