Natural Wonders of the World

Natural wonders of the world

With your iridescent shine

Where can we find you

In the sea, sky or earth?

Are you abalone, blue as the sea?

Or conch pink and rare

Keshi, the Chinese reborn

Mikimolo and Quahog

Your names are unpronounceable

You have elegance and Lustre

You are all a mystery

What are you Tahitian of purity?

patience of a spider

Suspended from the ceiling

motionless

you look like a statue

Frozen

transfixed by your stillness

Spellbound

Without warning you drop

Swifly

Your delicate invisible strand

Smoothly

your long legs are still

gliding

you reach your target

Pausing

I watch, wait, wonder

Patience

I will apply the same

Composure

You are always a beautiful
