As the sun bathes all in liquid gold
I feel the softness of grass under bare feet
Stopping, eyes closed, I drink in the freshness of the day
My arms so relaxed; all heavy burden relinquished
I smile and know it pleases her...
...for me to feel at peace and whole.
Lowering myself to the grass I soak in all around me
Lying now, I rest my head amongst the pasture
Watching the bee land nearby; I look in wonder as she drinks in the nectar
The fly flits about searching his bounty
A dog barks in the distance
Causing the crows to fly off en masse.
Listening to the trees sigh, as their leaves are caressed by gentle breeze
The Robin skips from branch to branch
A Song Thrush stops close by to serenade my soul
The sweet, sweet smell of blossom
- making me laugh like a drunken jester
The kite swoops, searching to nourish his newly hatched future
And all around me life smiles
I feel embraced by its support.
I stand once more, time to leave now
Walking away from my oasis I'm thankful for all I have
I feel the inner warmth
Nourished by all I have been offered
I turn to walk my new path
The one that holds an exciting new life
Like coming out of hibernation
I see all with fresh eyes now.
