Another wonderful lesson from nature. It is amazing what she says to us if we but listen this day after Earth Day.

Earthday brings poetic thoughts of
Many things I’ve seen, yet shoved
Aside this week waiting spring.
With colored grace that flowers bring.
A single Tulip near my porch
Ascends alone as crimson torch
To be the one by teaching all
That it sustained long past the fall.
I read its thoughts within the red
And vowed to spread the message said:
It matters not where you abide
As long as you subside your pride
And be your light upon the earth
As blessed within God’s love and mirth.
