the palm of your hand.

A study of the uniqueness of nature
The Gift

Golden needles shower down
draping the forest floor
White froth waves come barreling in
crashing on the shore

Brilliant light flashes cross the sky
lighting striking down below
A chill dances in the morning air
as it begins to snow

As dawn breaks so does the soil
meadow flowers pushing through
The eagle soars upon the wind
its quarry to pursue

Notes of music fill the air
as birds sing their evening song
Joined by the babble of a brook
its waters flowing strong

Nature's beauties set before our eyes
although many do not see
Chasing fortune and fame throughout their lives
and missing what is free

Remember this one day you'll die
all the toys just left behind
While missing out on the gifts God gave
in love for you to find
