Serenade

Subtle rays of sun awake

Earthly living things.

Rising up as day does break

Easing out of dreams.

Now the song the dove must sing

Announces the new morn.

Donned in heaven’s golden ring

Ever thankful to be born.

Summer’s Heat, July

Summer’s heat, July

Birds…bees sing their joyful songs

By nature’s design.

Sadly we too oft’ ignore

Beauty that lay before us.

 

Distracted by life

All just to try to survive

We get very lost.

Perhaps if we took a step back

What we’re missing would be found.

 

Look to the sky, grass,

Look to the simplicity in life

For what’s important.

This is what Mother gave us

To keep from going insane.

Sky, Canvas of Blue

Sky, canvas of blue

Bespectacled by wondrous birds

Melody of song

Sung naturally without urge

So often ignored by man

O’ the things we miss

Rushing in our meager lives

How terribly sad

Perhaps taking a moment

We’d realize what’s important

Gravity defied

As silver birds reach the skies

Takeoffs and landings

If man’s truly meant to fly

He would sprout feathers and wings

Buds

 

Buds

Sparrows

Defy cold

Fickle winter

Sensing springs approach

Something man never could

Having lost touch with nature

Too absorbed with things of this world

He is merely along for the ride

Technology and ignorance stunt him

Now he must live as a passenger

Trusting meteorology

A most imperfect science

To decipher nature

While birds and buds thrive

In harmony

with instincts

That man

Lost
