This Beauty

O Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures. —Psalm 104:24

There were only a few moments

to wander in the little garden,

that place of solace that gives

me so much, my place to remember

creation and the Creator. 

The little tuft of grass that blows

softly above the silver pony,

the new little button roses

that turn the sweetest pink 

before fading back into snow,

the blue plumbago all silvery

like moon glow, the shadows

from a tree, its limbs holding

only a few more leaves waiting

to fall on the autumn floor,

and I take just a few moments

in this remembrance of being before 

we lived sealed inside lifeless walls

separated from this beauty around us.
