Got up earlier today so gave myself a moment outside before diving into work. What a glorious way to start the day. Thought I’d share. Find some nature today my dears.
All is Well in Nature
Taking a moment before
starting work at home.
for a breath of snow-fog.
The breakfasting deer twitch their flags
and make show of trotting two steps toward the woods
no worry deer
I am here for the crescendo, decrescendo
of the drumming woodpecker.
He has found a hollow tree to play
the morning dove sings back up
and the twitty birds sound unseen everywhere.
I pick a winter-bleached milkweed pod
to have with me today
to remind me
all is well in nature on this spring day.
