Sweet the air after rain,
the cleansing a feeling of restored hope,
and despite the doom and heavy burdened clouds,
I know the light is safely tucked away behind them.
The natural world evokes dreams,
an understanding of extremes,
and if we listen hard to her whispers,
we may begin to understand this world in constant flux.
For what is darkness and light
but how we respond to them,
and does happiness depend on sunny days, or darkest nights,
or are we the masters of our plight, in response?
I love the scent of honey suckle on the vine,
the delicate hint of rose, and the earthen mulch
as spring evokes the growth,
and life in all its aspects is sweeter than honey.
Tis we alone who can imbibe the truth,
the beauty in every single life and hope,
and when we judge each single thing,
we ignore everything, for what it truly is.
I love the smell of rain,
for all is does to feed our lives,
and as it falls from heaven’s glorious bounds,
and each drop as it touches ground,
is a blessing, we choose to take.
