Life in Abundance

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Dewdrops form on velvet leaves,

like crystal worlds,

while insects wake

from darkness slumber,

and venture into light.

Movement, activity,

purpose without thought,

life’s sweet expression

prevails.

A breeze gently strokes

blades of grass,

yearning upward,

like green soldiers

tall and resolute,

while tiny creatures

scurry below, unseen,

foraging, in abundant life.

Birds swoop

in playful abandon,

imbued with the joy of being,

without thought or compromise,

living in moments of grace.

Skies vast and endless,

hover above,

singing the praises of life,

evolving white clouds

drift upon the canvas,

free, enraptured.

All this, strokes my soul,

touches me in profound ways,

gives purpose and understanding,

why.

Lost to the periphery of living,

it is so easy to lose the wonder,

the importance of being,

the pure love

that resides within everything.

The truth is there to see,

for those willing to see.
