  • The Art of Listening to the Morning

    (Submitted by the author)

    In the stillness of early morning,
    Spirit speaks to me in quiet repose.
    Somehow it seems easier to touch my own
    heart
    when the rest of the world is
    asleep
    and only the birds and the wind
    speak ...
    It is as if nature has its time alone
    with the Divine,
    to reset the tempo of the
    day.
    Long-legged spider moves softly
    Through long-legged grass.
    An endless dance of passion between
    old friends.
    I watch and listen and receive
    my soul's direction.
