stop time.

two of my grandies at the detroit zoo

experiencing the butterfly house

firsthand

and finding 

just who exactly

is patiently sitting with them

waiting for his identity to be discovered.

even a tiny fleck of it stops time.”

or an adventurer in search of treasure.

attention.

Standard

when we set out on our hike 

to see what spring animals

were out there

we thought maybe

we’d see a bear

awakening from a long winter’s nap

though we most likely 

scared any creature

who happened to be in our oncoming path

or most anywhere in the vicinity

with our marching and laughing and yelling and jumping

and then

we looked closer

and at last

found an animal

passed over by many

who was not afraid of us

just waiting to to be discovered 

a single ant.
