Things we take for granted
Ever notice the simplistic, beauty of a blade of grass;
Or examined the veins of a fallen leaf, with its patterned elegance?
Have you visioned the angel-like, grace of a snowflake, in flight;
Or looked upon the rainbow, prisms of a teardrop.
Have you listened to the menagerie, of calling birds in the treetops;
Or heard the sweet, magic of a baby's laughter?
Have you detected, the snap of a flag in the wind, atop its perch;
Or embraced in gratitude, someone close your heart?
Have you felt the dainty, softness of a rose petal in bloom;
Or whispered I love you to anyone?
Have you perceived, the prick of a pine needle, on your fingertip;
Or contemplated the moon, bursting in yellow fullness?
Have you witnessed a mama, bird feed its eager young;
Or felt the warmth of the glowing, sunshine upon your cheek?
Have you inspected a vine in spiral growth upon the fence post;
Or examined in fascination, both the power and gentle enchantment, of the human hand?
Have you witnessed a child, toddle about in pure, freeing joy;
Or felt a moment of lazed, relaxation snuggled in a bed of coziness?
Then you are alive, treasure it
Bathe in it, bask in its richness
Renew in it, share in it
Suffuse your soul, spiritualize the occasion
Immerse yourself, be the skylight of life
Remember this glorious day
You are alive, treasure it
