Birds sweetly announcing the dawn,
Enticing me to stir and sing a welcome to the day.
Paintings of the sky in the water,
Their perfection seducing Picasso to rise and freeze them in time.
The green that ebbs my worries away with the wind that carries her seeds.
The hope that comes with the smell of rain…
The mountains are calling
Home beckons me to peace.
