Bestow: Gifts in the Bayou


There is such beauty

in the water and sky

a gift bestowed upon me

there is no reason why


Water shimmering

reflections in the sun

birds surrounding me

squirrels in a playful run


Taking time to invest

in the preservation of the bayou

inhaling the clean air

my spirit is new


A fish jumps

grasses swaying in the breeze

beaver building a dam

life is at ease


Many gifts are bestowed

in this natural habitat

heightened awareness of senses

a broken branch sounds like a bat


Rain falling now

a cleansing smell

my spirit is renewed

all is well
