Morning Light

The light is so beautiful this morning.

Everything green dances in the wind.

I simply sit and let the visions come to me;

The face in the tree, the waving branches,

The constantly shifting shades of illumination.

When the song bird sings, does she feel the same

Splendor I do when I hear her?

Her body resonating with waves of sound

That carry effortlessly in the morning air.

The chimes ring quietly in accompaniment.

There is a whispering in the trees.

I wonder what they are saying,

Or is it just a collective sigh…

A cresting breath of being

Right here, right now, in Grace.
