“The Gift”

The warming of skin

by Sun’s soft kiss

Fragrant petals of color divine
fills the nose and eyes
with hopes of calm
as a soft wind drifts by 
caressing the soul

Trees wave with leafy hands
giving invite to share in abundant joyClouds and birds open the show
as they dance in a sea of blue backdrop
Turning black for the evening soiree
featuring Moon, stars and other heavenly delights

Nature is a gift
to sustain our lives
soothe our spirit
and strengthen body and mind

-C. H. Eldridge
