Peaceful are the mornings-
When most people have yet to wake…
Birds and crickets make the sounds-
A quiet mind will not forsake.
Bright are the colors-
With blue skies streaked by the sun-
Flowers mangle the grass-
As summer makes outside more fun.
More insects at the feet-
Or flying close to the face…
Making the time to notice-
Leaves no future regret to chase.
Butterflies have more style-
Than any celebrity will ever create…
And peaceful landing on a leaf-
Is worth the moment’s break.
Stolen serenity today-
Can lead to sanity tomorrow.
Take the time to notice…
As minutes are not available to later borrow.
