Faint: A Nature Melody

big tree reservoir overlook natchez trace

Resting beneath the tree

I heard a faint sound from Heaven

beautiful but sure

making my soul more leaven


Listening carefully

the sound began in the trees

whispering softly

while on my knees


While in prayer

I heard from above

birds singing  songs

filled with love


Then came a faint chirp

cicadas across the land

blending in nicely

with this wonderful band


A leaf drops

speaking about life

all things come in time

no matter what the strife


Some squirrels now

climbing up the limbs

joining the harmony

jumping on branches slim


The music ends

time to rejoin the day

a song in my soul

continuing to play
