Strolling down the lane, canopy covered, lush green carpet
draws me onward.
I am mindful and I recognize
the Source of my being, here in this quiet morning.
Birds singing, sun shining, dew glistening,
I feel ONE with the natural rhythm of
this green exotic place.
My Soul drinks in peace, this wonderful escape
from life’s routine, and I am refreshed.
My eyes drink in the sun’s rays filtering through the trees,
catching the morning dew, kissing fern, leaf and grass.
I become the sun. I become fern, peridot green, dew laden,
ever reaching outward. I am nature at its finest!
The sunlight encompasses me and light fills my very being,
and I walk on, knowing I am ONE with all that is.
I see the handiwork of God everywhere I look!
