February 19 – Dance Concert

Post It Note Poetry Feb 19

Plumage of tulle

Bunched around bottoms

The perfect formation

Of conglomeration

Packed together

Cygnets learning to fly

In formation

By huddling together


This poem was inspired by the eucalyptus tree in blossom outside the office where I work.

Post It Note Poetry Feb 19

I have two young daughters who love to dance and the bunch of blossoms reminded me of children’s dance concerts where they haven’t quite learned spacial awareness and clump together on stage.

If you are a native Antipodean, it will also remind you of May Gibbs’ creation, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

  1. It’s very nice. The flowers are very much like little ones dancing. I really like the second verse.
