Life's Gifts


conservationalliance.com

Accept my gift of air,
says Tree -
a free exchange.
Sit upon my softness and rest,
invite the mossy roots.
Feast your eyes!
brags the fiddlehead fern,
unfurling itself like
a trapeze artist
in mid-flight.

Around us,
Mother Earth is showering
her love upon us:
rock and river,
flower and tree,
teaching us there is great peace
in simply being
who we're meant
to be.

  7. Being in love with nature's blessings is certainly asked for. It is just that many take it for granted
