While walking after a raucous thunder shower,
I saw a lone aspen leaf laying against black tar.
Upon it was a tiny lake of fallen rain.

Further on, a canopy of giant red and green maple
leaves reached to me from above - as water
droplets hung on point.

Multi-hued clouds formed their ranks leaving
the air divinely cleansed.

I'm humbly grateful.

God Speak

I had a moment this evening
while kneeling and talking to God.
The gentle wind blew notes from distant
chimes through my open window.
The breeze caressed my face and arms.
Golden sunlight filtered through sheer
curtains, teasing my closed eyelids.
I had a moment.
