Orange and red leaves rustle in the breeze

a chorus floats magically across the field . . .

but leaves don’t sing so where is the source

of nature’s symphony so generous to yield?


At just the right moment I was brought here

to hold my breath, tilt my head and see . . .

not five, not ten, maybe two dozen or more

small birds emerge and fly to a tall pine tree.


How joyous to know that God’s tiny creatures

could touch my life in this unique way . . .

a blessing to learn that miracle of miracles

when maple trees sing it's a perfect day.

Spirit always draws you where you are supposed to be and most often through glorious nature itself Donelle. The trees are powerful soldiers who put their loving arms around us. He knows how to get your attention :)

Love and Light

My father used to tell me when I was a child, "Stay in touch with nature and you shall stay in touch with God." Your poem reminds me of this, Donelle. Thank you. Love and blessings to you,
