Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Take time to notice the beauty of nature all around you
Is there magic
in a drop of rain
or wisdom in the clouds
Are there memories
riding lighting bolts
as evening drops it's shroud

Maybe whispers in
a summer breeze
or shouts from winter winds
While sea foam
sprays across the shore
a brand new day begins

Could there be courage
in the mighty oak
that stands against the storm
Or love found in
a foxes den
her cubs kept safe and warm

Perhaps nobility
in a eagles wings
soaring majestic in its flight
And joy found in
the otters play
on river banks at night

Is fear found in
a lions heart
when pouncing on its kill
Or wisdom deep
within the owl
to give us at his will

Can hope be found
in a rainbow's bands
promise to end all strife
New birth found
in a meadow
as its flowers spring to life

If we stop to take
the time and look
at nature all around
We'd be surprised
at how much beauty
in this world that can be found
