Connecting with Nature

Early morning dawn quietly starting the day

with the beginnings of sunshine caressing the earth.

Surveying the lawn,  my eyes suddenly meet

large almond-shaped eyes looking back at me.

There among the pine trees, blending in with pine straw,

are several large deer, their heads held high.

They maintain their stare with an occasional ear twitch

as if to ask, “May we please stay and rest for a while?”

“Of course, my friends, so glad you stopped by,

you have blessed my day with your gift of presence.”

And so my day began being grateful for God’s grace

that quietly reminded me of what is important in life.
