Nature Awakened Today
With new shoots sprouting forth
Flower buds miraculous appearing
On cacti as if overnight.
Periwinkle blue berries form a carpet
Under junipers
The color of bluebirds
That past through last week.
I sit with my back against a ancient cedar
Hoping it imparts wisdom with its sap rising.
Yesterday, I heard the faint call of Canada geese
With the message on the wind
Change is coming!
Sweetness is in the air.
I brush past a tree
A puff of incense releases
With a soft thank you.
I am in heaven
On earth
Once again.
