Too aware of life-
is it a curse
or a blessing to revel in?
Calm, the mind at peace-
let the poetry of life, living
whisper sweet communion with my soul.
Listen to the birds, crickets, bats-
the wind in the trees, the shade of the sun
and her life giving light;
Listen to the very pulse of life
at one with my very heart;
listen, and live life’s bounty.
