The beauty and peace of living.
Outstretched Arms

Autumn's chill sits upon my lap,
hand in hand with a cool
setting sun and together they
embrace my ecstatic smile.

The beauty of a lonely silence,
merrily broken by a whispering woods,
nature's voice, bustling with the
daily goings on of life,
sits upon my heart with a peaceful sigh.

To lay back my head upon this
ragged wooden bench with
outstretched arms I take a
deep breath through my chilled
nose and nature's gift of existence
nibbles a melody upon my mind.

And mother natures perfume
sends shivers of the joy of
living, gracefully tap dancing
upon my mellowed soul,
eternally forever in love.
