I wonder why

Clouds float weightless
Thermals supporting their mass
Until they downpour

Blossom only blooms
Exactly when called to come
As insects arrive

Birds construct nests
Without pregnancy tests
Perfect baby beds

Cats wonder away
Alone with only their thoughts
Ready to leave

Nature listens
As we seem deaf, dumb and blind
To the world around

Wonder what we'd look like with attributes of the many species we wonder about? I loved the lack of pregnancy tests the most, but your entire well-paced poem has me wondering.

Love this, really nice thought that we may be numb but creation is vibrant all about us. Great.

Sometimes mankind seems to be the clueless individuals on the planet. We cannot tell time without a clock and yet all the other species have no clocks. They know exactly what time is at any given moment. They all seem to have a purpose while so many of us just wander through life trying to figure out what we are supposed to do. It sometimes seems that the more advanced we think we have become, the more we seem to have really gone backwards. But backwards to what, I am not sure.

Thanks for sharing such a thought provoking poem with this weeks Theme Thursday and how it makes us think about the wonder of our lives. I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with the wondrous sights of nature around you.

God bless.
