Ladybugs struggle to keep a grip on moistened leavesâ€”
Butterflies flutter their feather-light wings
And mottled stalks assent to the rising breeze.
Beyond the path that leads to the meadow,
Sparrows take flight from their nesting treesâ€”
Creating rain-soaked leaves to glisten like shattered mirrors
And sunrays capture the essence of the after rain.
Honeysuckle saturates the air with its perfume
Mingling with the simple freshness of dampened earth,
That fills the air with splendor and His goodness
And penetrates the senses with pure simplicity.
Robins sing their chorus to the retreating stormâ€”
Fleeting clouds drift across the distant sky,
While trailing shadows chase the thinning haze
And disappear into carefree sunbeams along the rise.
Unfurling colors spread as ribbons above the treesâ€”
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet
Etching an archway across the clearing heavens
And embracing the distant hills with the perfect kiss.
I close my eyes to soak up the enchanting beautyâ€”
Tranquil moments fill my thirsty soul,
His blessed peace flows through my inner being
And imprints the perfect scene within my mind.
