Thousand Touches

Tick-tock of a clock lasts a fraction of moment, Yet, makes me cognizant of the moments potent; The dewdrop that glistens from the tip of a leaf, Though its life is a second or minute so brief... The mayfly lives, kissing the lamp, a day or less, Yet, that makes itself as happy as none could guess; Fruit fly survives fourteen days as a total whole, Egg to larva, pupa, the adult with a goal... The Pantry pests, Luna moths, ant-drones and houseflies, Each lives with no complaints and dies with no outcries; Parrot, crow, pigeon, sparrow, eagle, and vulture, Who have, earning the food they eat, as their culture... Clean air, soothing sounds, and the beauty of nature, A beam of sunlight and gleam of gentle gesture; Relishing memories; cherishing warm events, Sun basking, Moon baking, Stargazing calm moments... The holiness of motherhood; Fatherly care, Fraternal love and mutual concern we share; I cannot just tell, indeed, what does not touch me, Devoid of these touches, can I ever be me…? 17 July 2021 Touch My Heart Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Regina McIntosh

A thousand and one hurrahs! Congrats on your win. One quibble the one day life of the mayfly applies only to the adult stage, which is basically a frantic mating dance. Most of their life is spend underwater quiely feediing on organic matter and providing year roundfoood for fish.
