Words By: ecopoet

Atmospheric breath releasing

            Fresh aroma circles the air

Intoxicating fragrance

            Warm dew glides along the skin

The giving sky            empties –

            Rivers and streams receive in love

Lingering vapor          surrounding

            Calmness greets holy ground

Vibrant green penetrates

            As fiddleheads pop up to view

Butterflies float and flutter

            Pollenated wings, cleaned of clutter

Puddles left to jump or wade

            Prayers answered while you play

 Cleansing ceremony

             Atmosphere recycling patterns

Earth respected

            Words and actions matter

Sweet fragrance lingers

Remembrance fills the corners of the mind

Mother nature’s aroma caresses

Earth eyes no longer blind

Free senses heighten

Gift of rain’s  grace

Dark thoughts washed clean

Natures rhythm soothing pace
