after a stressful day

after a stressful day,
you can't blame one for envying
bugs that make love all day
atop sweet wildflowers swaying
with each passing vehicle.

after a stressful day,
you can't blame one for envying
butterflies that jump from flower to flower,
dance with each other before mating,
or play touch and go in your garden.

after a stressful day,
you can't blame one for envying
dragonflies that blend where they lay,
playing dead or maybe dreaming
none could see they're ever there.

after a stressful day,
you can't blame one for envying
northern cardinals in your yard,
with crimson red coats that bring
life to your otherwise dull grass.

after a stressful day...
