Nature surrounds me in magnificent beauty.


 


Beautiful things surround me and I am trapped in awe


Of how the flowers pop from earth and hang from trees in air


I stoop to smell the sweetness, the aroma it enthralls


My senses and my vision are wrapped with kindness there.


 


The birds in flock delight me, I marvel wings in flight


Are colors of the rainbow each one a different sight.


Hummingbirds do flit around and travel oh so far


To drink the nectar I provide in a hanging jar.


 


Indigo Buntings dart through the wind in a sea of blue


Dazzling me with tiny wings and chirping, "I see you!"


Mockingbirds and Cardinals and Jays are plenty, too


And Orioles the shade of orange, in flock, not one or two!


 


I hear the laughter of a child it sends my heart aglow


To know their little voices can put on quite a show.


A smile delights the core of me, it melts my inner soul


To know a child is perfect love, unconditional and it shows.


 


So many items are on my list of exquisite earthly things


Brought to me in various ways, it literally makes me sing.


To know I am a part of it and all that it can bring


Puts joy in this heart of mine; I am their puppet on a string.


 


So now, I close this simple poem because I've said it all


As beautiful things surround me and I am trapped in awe.

Beautiful write full of wonderful imagery...trapped in awe, if we only take the time to appreciate the simple things in life, we can be trapped in awe! Enjoyed!
Blessings,
