Nature adopts one small angel — poem

A small ceramic angel improved by nature with green moss, grey lichen and a tiny plant sprouting from its head
Nature has taken over this ceramic angel and improved it
O lucky Max

‘Today was the worst day
in my whole entire life.
Five bad things happened.

   1.'I forgot my lunch—again.
    2.I missed out on play lunch.
    3.Celia hit me with a hat.
    4.Then Celia hit me with some
    nail polish in a glove.
   5. At soccer people stooded
    on my head.’

Oh lucky Max.
You’re six. And you survived.
May this truly be the worst day

in your whole entire life.
May you never have another day
as bad as this.

Moss, lichen and a tiny plant have settled into a small ceramic angel in the most beautiful way. I was enchanted and had to share. Obviously the angel reminds me of the innocence of children in my life (mostly adults by now). So out comes an old poem about one of those children, all angels in their way. (Damn, that is sentimental.)

If you like, browse my abandoned blog, a graveyard for old poems or drafts: Poems in the wild. Awesome photos there too!
