THE SUN, THE WIND, THE LAKE, A BIRD AND YOU

©2009 Joan Cartwright

The end of the year brings forceful wind

That glides across the lake

And rustles the branches of the trees

While a bird sits and suns upon a stone

Then, you join me in my reverie

Of wonderment and appreciation

Oh, world of my life, tomb of my grave

And core of my existence,

Thank you for the delight of living

Thank you for the light of being

Thank you for the desire of loving

Of knowing this experience

To live, to walk on Earth and see

The sun, the wind, the lake, a bird and YOU!
