Mother Nature's Lullaby

December 27, 2011
The birds overhead
sing their sweet songs high above,
lulling me to sleep.

Flies buzz, ladybugs
crawling on my cool skin--
I stretch out my arms.

The fragrant scent of
dandelions relaxes
my languid body.

Lying in the grass,
breathing in Nature's nectar
dreaming of breakfast.

Waking up, I see
Dawn's rosy fingers touching
the shining, blue sky.

Kissed by the warm
sun, I smile, rub my eyes
and greet the new day.
