Here, at autumn's apex, I find
my kin amongst the trees, whose
stripped branches yet reveal,
a few orange-breasted robins,
to remind me that truly nothing is lost.
Nature's wisdom revealed in each twist
and bend of branch, assures that less
is only more- more awareness,
and yes, more gratitude.
For gratitude provides its own engine
by a design divine- built to increase exponentially-
upon its expression.
To see through thankful eyes
to what lies beneath-
is the gift I find most precious,
the very root of gratitude in practice.
As an Ecstatic Poet, my aim is to awaken in you, the part of you that knows the truth of your being, the beauty of your soul.
