A Morning Blessing

The sun is alive and all creatures are awake Even the green leaves seem to be breathing And the air is crisp and cool and pure Little black and gray birds sit on the bushes chirping The squirrels are on the fence demanding nuts The earth here and now is alive and trembles And out of respect for this day I will not turn on the tv or listen To the horrors that man crowded Overrun extended and exceeded Beyond what has been brought into being I need what the earth this day has given A golden yellow morning, with small leaves quivering As fresh air wafts through the house Though the doctor calls early to ask With a kind heart to make another appointment I promise next month I will be there but not now For the sun is alive and all creatures are awake And I wish to honor what the day has given
