Mist hovers in the hollows,
Rain-sated green
Dancing in shimmering pools,
Hungrily greeting day,

Robins sing,
Ruffled and puffed,
Waking morning
With a hearty, Cheerio!

Mercy’s rain soaks deep
Nurturing earth in love,
A moment’s grace
Amid the din of life,

Time and space
To seek the extraordinary,
Beauty often overlooked,
Faith’s tender blossom

Unfurling one tiny petal at a time,
Joy streaming in at edge of day
Drenching my soul in
