In the quietness of the early morning
before all the other humans arise and start making noise
To the sounds of nature
I hear the wind as it whispers through the leaves on the trees
I hear birds singing somewhere off in the distance, merrily proclaiming the dawning of this new day.
I watch as the emerging sunlight plays along with the wind
in making the leaves of the trees dance
their bright reflections of green, sparkling joyfully
With no audience to observe their lovely spectacle, aside from me
and the birds.
As their shadows flicker upon the walls of my room, my cat joins in
amusing in her observation
my sweet kitty.
Breathing it all in
To what is not heard by human ears
A different frequency, one of the Spirit
an awareness of something deeper
a profound connection
with all living things
with my Creator.
The whole earth is filled with His glory
And rejoicing, I worship
I want to stay in this moment
to linger in this wonderful sense of awareness
But time marches on as time tends to do, and the humans begin to arise
I hear stirring in the next room, increasing traffic driving by outside, the jingling of dog tags as someone passes below my window while out for a morning stroll with their dog
All of them completely unaware of the elation I’m experiencing in this sacred moment so near to their proximity.
Pondering that breaks my concentration
I want to share this wonderment with them
help those ‘noisy’ fellow humans realize
to be aware
and enter in
Not sure of exactly how to go about that
I sip my coffee
and listen some more…
