I’ve developed a fondness 

for flowers, and I tell you, 

if you take the time to notice, 

they are different each day,

each hour, really.  I’ve become

enamored of bees, only recently

realizing how many I’ll see if I slow

down and seek them amid blooms

near me.  I have been standing 

under trees, finding a new kind 

of comfort beneath canopies,

and somehow squirrels realize

that I am no threat, wasps fly

close but don’t sting, birds

continue to sing even as I step 

in to take a peek (though, 

I must admit, getting a good 

bird photo is most difficult). 

I feel a bit like Eve in an earthly 

Eden, my eyes newly awakened 

and creation sits wide open.  

I am so humbled by each wonder 

God so kindly nudges 

me to notice.
