Nature sings
as it wakes up from
winter slumber
It shouts and calls
for rebirth
The birds tweet
and caw
and tease
They sing
and chirp
and flit
The trees are ready to sprout their leaves
for another season
The grass is ready to turn
green and lush
All this, for me, the observer
The lake shape shifts before me
The water dances many dances
as the wind decides how it wants to play
The rain falls gently, so gently
it is barely noticeable
but I hear the gentle and graceful
notes on the earth as the two meet
All this, for me, the one who listens
Moments of Silence and Stillness
between breaths
and then a graceful song from a robin
Then she’s gone and only a gentle breeze
shows herself to me as the mighty oak
silently waves her branches.
All this, for me, as I watch the world wake up
before my very eyes
How blessed am I?
So much Gratitude
