So many natural


pass us by

as we lose


in lists and imperatives,

obligations and striving.

Yet if we open ourselves

to ponder

and be moved

by nature

it fosters a

sense of connection

with life.

I am here

in this place.

Also, gratitude

at the gifts

I am given

that, graced,

I do not earn.

Such a focus can


and relativise

what would consume


and my days

while adding

stress and anxiety

and little else.
