Dewdrops of rain kissing leaf and flower,
Cool crisp breeze cleanses my soul.
The hum of bee and cicada fills the air,
Sun warms my skin, lulling me into a trance.
The leaves bend with the wind,
Keeping time with my heart.
The flow of life all around me,
As I stand in this one moment.

I was reading a wonderful book, which inspired me to write a stream of consciousness poem in one minute this summer…staying in the moment. So I went out after a rainstorm, sat on my step, breathed in and observed for one minute (OK 3 minutes) and wrote my thoughts and observations from the heart.
The pictures here are of bees going crazy for my native Summersweet bush flowers this summer…it has a dreamy scent.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up, Poetry Pantry, for poets who blog.
I leave you with a few additional words about nature speak. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
