POST 233: red ant hill, woods, poetry, painting, South Carolina

EDGE OF THE WOODS

EDGE OF THE WOODS

ONE TINY WONDER

at the edge of the woods
millions of red ants
constructing their own massive pyramid
intentions for survival
each one understanding its worth
placing one dirt grain
just so
life driven
as the old Incas
above the Urubamba Valley
