Nature’s Bounty

What a time  
To be alive  
Slowly awakened by rustling leaves  
Swaying in the gentle fall breeze  
 
The distant call and response;  
A pair of red robins  
Join in nature’s chorus  
A symphony of calmness  
 
My eyes wander through the foliage  
Admiring the collage of colors  
Vibrant, lush greenery greets my gaze  
Surrounded by an invigorating, uplifting aura  
 
I lethargically take a strolling glimpse  
Up above the forest —  
A crisp, blue canvas patterned with milky, white clouds meets my pupils  
The wispy stratus streaks give way to a display of plush cumulus clouds  
 
Life comes to a brief standstill,  
Time offers me a momentary reprieve  
I relish the moment with fervor;  
Greedily engorging on nature’s bounty  
 
The requiem is fleeting, however  
Fluttering wings jolt me out of my stupor,  
Time marches on once more  
As do I in my life’s journey
