Kinship with All
The Sun kissed my face this morning
as I stepped out on the lawn
lifting my head to the sky,
I raised the arms high in greeting and thanks.
Majestic Oak trees beyond the garden
brought stillness and serenity,
Singing their age old hymns,
Giving without asking for praise.
Still dressed in nightie, I decided
to say hello to each little plant,
Greet every newcomer and those from before.
How at ease nature Is.
Wonder if we could ?
The birds make me laugh as they fly
displaying exuberance and joy,
I wish there was space to introduce them all.
Swallows, Goldfinch, Sparrow, Blackbird,
Doves, not forgetting wobbly Pigeon.
The blessings they so freely give.
Music to make the heart soar.
I stand there for a while, fill my soul,
make sure I won’t forget as the day flows on,
Hoping I will learn this song.
Of belonging and kinship with all.
