Unafraid

Standard

The

Bird keeps singing his song

As I approach the tree

So sweet

The melody.

I stop and close my eyes to listen

Appreciatively

Letting this music swirl around me.

And I open my eyes

In spring sun glare

Taking a few steps closer.

He stays unafraid

And his song is all I hear

Now amidst this chaos in my mind.

Forgetting human language for a time

I am steady.

You Decide

Standard

A red cardinal over there,

A mesquite tree over here.

Mother Nature shows me many creations.

The smell of wet saltgrass and dirt

Fill my senses.

This oak tree I am under,

Her leaves shine as if coated in silver

As raindrops sparkle setting delight afire

Within my heart.

Nature presents herself

As is,

The individual decides whether she is beautiful or not.

In Front of Me

Standard

The sun rose gently today,

I am thankful for that.

Giving my eyes time to adjust;

Delicate light

Touches stone

And cactus.

Life around me

Stretches and yawns at once.

The birds join in

As they announce the arrival of day once again,

Happily

In synch with the natural rhythms of life.

The sun has peaked the horizon

And now burns my eyes.

For this I am grateful as well,

To set myself free of yesterdays burdens

And confusion

With breath and light,

For this is the world

Right in front of me.

Currents

Standard

And here 

Untamed winds blow.

I never tire

Watching

The plains grass ripple with ever

New currents, new gusts.

A rhapsody

So beautiful.

And the clouds

Go on forever

As I settle into myself,

My hair a mess.

I am  melancholy

But my spirits lift as I sit

And sway with the tall grass.

I imagine I am the bird riding

These unseen shifts and using them to see 

Clearly

What is around me.

Having faith in the realization

That I know more than I

Give myself credit for.

Instinct and intuition.
