Listen to the wind blowing softly through the trees ,
and hear the leaves gently rustling floating in the breeze .

The coolness of the air is soothing to the spirit ,
with calmness all around ... listen ... can you hear it ?

Occasional buzzing of a fly invades for but a moment ,
and just as quickly it is gone ... its energy all but spent .

Cherish this precious moment now and capture the very best ,
and know that this was given you for your private rest .

For He has granted this to you for reasons yet unknown ,
to give that life of wholeness ... revealed and openly shown .

So be thankful for these gifts of senses ,
knowing, there'll be time for recompenses .
