Sat in the sun this morning
among bushes, flowers and trees.
among birds, butterflies and bees
Some big, some small, all in harmony
As was I under favourite arbour
dressed in Honeysuckle and Clematis
Total stillness resided in my soul,
I felt perfect peace
Part of nature’s incredible gifts.
Sadly we humans often lose this inheritance
looking at imagined or real problems ahead,
fears that eat the soul which was born to just be
Part of the wonder of universe, of a garden, a song.
I see now that when I move, a new garden will be my goal
My first act of creation somewhere new,
make a haven for birds, flowers and trees
and for me
Somewhere were you can sit alone or with friends
thanking for the wonder that is.
As we refill ourselves with new vitality.
