I peek with the view finder,
Excited of what could be seen.
In my little square of sight,
I see all I intend to see.
Freshly grown grass, greener and brighter
Than any I’ve ever perceived.
Tree trunks thick and brown,
with life within its leaves.
Little red birds gliding beneath,
a vivid blue sky, the clash of color startling.
A rabbit peeps from its borrow,
Wary of hidden prey.
With my lens I zoom in 20X,
And behold the life closer to the ground.
Millions of ants, in search of food
For their all-mighty queen.
My camera clicks and clicks,
As I capture nature’s beauty for myself.
