By Marcia Rafinski

Under a large sheltering tree
Sounds of water flowing
Warm gentle breezes
Back supported by tree trunk
Nature’s energy flowing from the tree,
Breeze, bird song into my body
Life’s abundant flow inside and outside

Flowers flowering
Pulsing radiance flowing
All is one
All is at peace
Creation happening every moment
Life overflowing
Thank you Thank you Thank you
