Budding trees burst with joy
As the day awakens to the rising sun;
Leaves pop open on each tender branch
Nature’s work has just begun.
A warm breeze flows from the wind
As it gently touches the tree;
A song is heard from the moving leaves
Softly swaying with a rhythmic glee.
Gentle rain falls from the sky
Washing away the dust in the air;
Drops of dew accumulate upon each leaf
Nourishment that provides its care.
As the fog begins to lift and fade away
The wind sends a stronger breeze;
Sun shines brightly as the clouds drift apart
Sending warmth to the budding trees.
These daffodils pop up from the earth
To welcome the warmth of the sun;
Tis an early sign from nature
That warmer days are yet to come.
Bright yellow blossoms greet the eye
Upon their long sturdy green stems;
Flowering bulbs of the Spring season
Oh how we always welcome them.
Cut a few to bring indoors and admire
What a cheerful sight to see;
Yellow glowing colors stand out
Providing nature’s beauty to thee.
A cheerful message these flowers send
That this day is as precious as the next;
A moment of time not to go unnoticed
For life is not meant to be so complex.
Sign of Spring
This blade of green grass
Tis a sure sign of Spring;
Rising from the cold earth
Look what it will bring.
A gift of hope
Warmer days are yet to come;
Hiding beside winter’s kill
Hurray! Spring has just begun.
Life awakens as daylight increases
From the darkness of former days;
Nature’s garden is brewing
From the energy of the sun’s rays.
A new beginning lies ahead
Just waiting to be discovered;
In this transition of the seasons
Are moments waiting to be uncovered.
The Energy Within
Let the energy within you
Shine before the light;
It holds much spirit
That will carry you thru the night.
Energy yet untapped
You did not know you had;
Will it to come before you now
Experience its force that makes you glad.
Like Nature’s beautiful flower
That rises from the stem;
The strength within its petals
A precious gift that is truly a gem.
The power of the spirit
With the energy it holds;
Tap into this inner strength
Feel its blossom begin to unfold.
A Walk Along the Beach
Gazing down as I walk along the beach
Feeling the warmth of the sand upon my feet;
The sun rises out over the ocean waves
My body awakens to the feel of its radiant heat.
Each and every step I go I breathe the salty air
With glorious smells of seaweed that lay down beneath me;
The gentle waves wash ashore collections of debris and matter
So interesting I stop to take notice at the piles left by the sea.
Trying to hide from the dangers that are present
A lonely sand dollar quietly rests upon the sand;
An amazing creature created from the energy of the sea
Gently I lift it and place it upon the palm of my hand.
Perfectly formed yet so very delicate by nature
I smile sweetly as this was such a great find;
It makes me happy and brings positive thoughts to my brain
For God had given me this gift to enjoy on his dime.
Gently I lift the sand dollar placing it back in the sea
It has brought such happiness to the start of my day;
Watching its movement as it settles back into the sand
A wave flows in from yonder and washes it away.
The Beauty of a Flower
Gaze your eyes upon this simple beauty
Notice the intricate design of the flower;
Stay focused on this present moment
Tis the most beautiful creation of the hour.
So delicate in color and vibrant with life
It hangs on to the stem with trust;
The plant will not die and wilt away
Nor will this flower curl up into dust.
Spring is the season plants vibrantly grow
Just to produce this colorful show;
Embrace the scene presented before you
Admire all the beautiful colors that glow.
Tis Gods’ gift of life wrapped in a present
Blessed are you to receive on this day;
Never deny that moment from Him
As you give thanks and pray.
Oh What a Beautiful Morning
A bright blue sky awakens the morning
To start on a positive note this day;
The sun rises to warm the earth
Unveiling the stage about to give way.
Gaze to the west at the mountains so high
Snow still remains at the top of the peak;
This glorious picture is such a breathtaking view
An amazing beauty one should seek.
It is an artist’s joy to create this painting
For the serenity of the picture to prepare;
The colors and textures upon the pallet
Brilliantly mixed together with care.
Nature created this glorious landscape
Take notice to how grand the expanse;
Give thanks for this present moment
And the beauty from God’s hands.
