Connected With Nature

I very rarely get up at the breaking of dawn
a blanket of muddy clouds
overcasts

an eyelash slither of light sliped pass
as the crescent moon cuts it's way through
with a wink

suddenly, in the neighbors yard next door
three startled deer stood in line
watching me
as I turned into my driveway

a quick dash and off
they ran for the thick woods
safe from the light of my headlights

no sooner than I parked
my headlight shining on the dead grass
engine running
a bushy tail rabbit ran into the light

I had forgotten how peacefully the animals play
under nighttime's moonshine
when I turn for my last snooze of the night

rarely
do I get up at the breaking of dawn
now I'm glad I did
as my spirit connected with nature once again

Lovely thoughts! And what joys to be descovered when we break from our natural habits. Nature plays her symphonies while we sleep!

when I turn for my last snooze of the night

rarely
do I get up at the breaking of dawn
now I'm glad I did
as my spirit connected with nature once again

always, Cat

When you fling poo, some of the stink sticks to you!
