Sitting In A Tree Watching The World

Look At All The Things We Have Missed

The stillness of the moment where nothing seems to be happening

Then as we look farther we see a bird we did not see

Off in a distance sitting quietly just like me

As my eyes gaze I see another bird high in the sky

Flapping it's wings as it quickly passes by

The sky so blue

The trees so old maybe hundreds of years they stood

Holding the same ground branches once small now have grown

I see a birds nest tucked away in one spot

A simple home that gives them a place to call their own

As I get swept by the moment

There is no better place to be

To rest and enjoy my day

In such a relaxing way

Voted up and beautiful. Lovely thoughts. Now I know what all those birds are doing in the trees in the spring and summer - watching the world. Loved this. Passing it on.

Dream On: Voted up and beautiful. I have a profound love of nature, especially birds and trees. I look at the trees and sky every morning on my walk and I am in constant awe of the changes in nature. The trees all have dormant buds on them, waiting to burst forth into green with the arrival of Spring. What a miracle! Thank you for these words of praise for God's beauty. Blessings, Sparklea :)

When I go out to visit my horse, like you, I enjoy Mother Nature's simplicities as well.

Joy56 To the heavens and to the earth many times.You have not gone you have changed and moved on.We are all in a constant flow of change and to hold on to any one moment to long goes against life and all that is beautiful.Enjoy each day and new loves await.To greive constantly puts you in a place where you have no control.Come grab my hand and watch and listen to the birds sing.Open your heart up to happiness once again.
