Bonding

A blackbird sings out
His voice breaks
Surrounded by branches
Hidden…
Not really.
A tree drops a leaf
Floats away to freedom
Butterflies flutter off.
My eyes quiet and still
Fall into a mischievous trance
Life and health
Fill the air
I feel free
Taste the visible
On a wooden bench
In the shade
I touch life
A connection….

  3. We can see so much when we just sit and observe nature; and yes, there is so much connection one can feel with the world around.... Beautifully expressed, Alan.

  12. ...isn't amazing how we can perceive so many many thing from just a small leaf falling before our eyes, from the mournful psalm birds are singing, from a scent of passing butterfly?... ha, most of the times we're left speechless.... how silence can be the best language between us & these wonders of life... lovely... smiles..
