POETRY

A Morning Walk

I walk at dawn and take in the great gifts of life, such as song birds, fresh dew, green grass, spring rain, brisk air, sun, blue sky, clouds, plants, deer, a pond with frogs, scents, sounds, and my good health. It is soul food. Peace comes like soft wind on my face. Love stirs. Hope calls. Will this day give me true joy, grief, smiles, tears, strength, friends, bad news, luck? Be glad, not sad. Let us all work hard, play, trust, learn, teach, laugh, sing, have faith, pray, and give praise for that which warms our hearts. Thank you life!
