La Petite Wonders
(A Little Garden to Walk In)
busy as a bee –
all decked out in sparkling dew,
painting a rainbow.
and monarch madness –
the surprise (of painted ladies)
in secret gardens.
along with the bees
(down to earth,
covering new ground),
all she is
is a little garden
in fields of happiness
making a world of difference --
the perfect spot
for new beginnings
under the stars.

Written for : Creative Bloomings: INFORM POETS – "FOUND POETRY" PROMPT- Feb26:
FOUND poetry is all about taking words that were not meant to be a poem in their original form, and turning them into a poem. These words/phrases/sentences come from newspaper articles, snippets of overheard conversations, recipes, interactions, letters… basically any written materials can offer “inspiration”.
The wording is not changed but your use of line breaks and cuts or by adding or deleting text, thus imparting new meaning. The resulting poem can be defined as either treated: changed in a profound and systematic manner; or untreated: virtually unchanged from the order, syntax and meaning of the original.
