The gift


you ever get the feeling,
when the wind blows,
the tree leaves shaking,
mother nature changing,
left there waiting,
yet you hesitate.

ride the rainbow,
ride the sun,
feel the love inside,
moon shadows,
eagles soaring overhead,
you just can’t wait.

suck in the ice air,
feel the heat of the fires,
snow on the mountains,
white on the sea,
waves of emotion,
make life your own gift.

Each day a gift
each moment waiting
to be unwrapped.

The rhythm sharpens the meaning in a way that appeals to the music in me. Thank you.
