The morning gives the dew,
and caps it with a breath of fresh air.
The sun gives its light,
quickening all to a burst of activity,
and productivity is its sheer delight.
The rain comes down,
excited in its wetness;
a cool relief from the hot nest,
and crops sprout from the ground.
The moon is silver,
up in the night sky so bright,
to the love birds in the park,
sharing special moments in the dark,
it sheds its silver light.
Firefly on my shirt,
Butterfly on her skirt,
bright coloured beetle on swaying grass,
a lonely swan drifting pass,
so much beauty in land and sea,
these special blessings and more, I have lived to see.
We often overlook the daily gifts that nature brings our way. Noticing these special blessings from nature can help lift a heavy heart, put a smile on a face, or simply make you feel good. I couldn’t help writing this piece when I took a moment to observe nature’s activities around me. Do the same and stay blessed ok.
