In perfect rhythm were tens of feet
Marching in splendid highstep.
With matching coats and plumes replete
Traveling over instead of sidestep.
Colors grand they proudly wave
Like soldiers in Her Majesties charge.
A steady pace each pair they gave
O’er obstacles both small and large.
A wondrous sight this was indeed
From a creature so vulnerable and small.
Normally fodder for shoe heel stampede
In hypnotic gaze I was enthralled.
The older I get the more I amaze
At creatures so often ignored.
Nothing have I than honest high praise
For the creature that once was abhorred.

Me too! “Increase my astonishment at Thee…” from the Quran. I love noticing the little things that as you say were unnoticed before. Excellent!
Thank you, I find it rather odd that I notice and marvel at the little things now where I never did before. I’m not sure if it is a result of age or something else, but I have to say I like it. 🙂
