Almost Perfect
Jana Kalina


Cloudless sky
Perfumed breeze
Open doors

Glistering emerald green
Buzzes in,
On transparent wings ó

Lands on lunch!

Jana Kalina lives with her husband on Vancouver Island, on the west coast of Turtle Island in British Columbia. A nature lover since toddlerhood, she's had the privilege of living on three very different continents thus far, enjoying the fact that each has its own unique geography, history, flora, and fauna. Says Jana, "When all else fails, nature's restorative embrace and expansiveness are my solace and joy. And poetry? Simply icing on the cake!"

What a surprise ending! I'm sure it has happened to all of us, right? It made me laugh. I was picturing the whole thing, watching the -lacewing is it?- fly into the sunny room, and, hello!

Here's for more appropriately-placed exclamations points in poems. Fun.
