Rain

Sounds of soft tapping

Metal roof reverberates

Close one’s eyes

Dreams of green fields

Wild flowers and petals open wide

It is good to be alive

Watching all the soil being natured

Rivers and streams overflowing

No control do we have

Only prayers to the creator

Thankful for these blessings

Others are overcome

Devastation and floods

Banks overrun

One person’s joy

Another’s sadness

Nature reigns

Sand

Sand upon the ground
A world unto its own
Filled with life unseen
People are like grains of sand
Sifting through our fingers
Too fast for us to stop
Take the time to catch the sand
To love cherish and not demand
Sprinkle the sand in a circle
And stand inside
You will find the joy is everlasting
Even after this earthly life

Trees

Swaying in the breeze
A rustle of the leaves
Flutter of wings
Home of a bird
Bridge for the squirrels
Acorns upon the ground
Eyes shut,  you can hear the sounds
Voices of the winds
Like whispers from the past
Found my home at last
