Serenity

Picture of sun streaming through trees and Quote by Lao Tzu
http://quotes.land/nature-doesnt-hurry/

Sitting here on my couch

Gazing out my window

Things quiet and serene

Sunshine steaming down

Upon the daffodils

Birds happily feasting

As squirrel scurries by

Nature seems content

Not a worry nor care

Oh that we were there

Syllabic Verse

“Nature doesn’t hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” – Lao Tzu

In the USA

Flag of the USA
Hush over the land

Humanity and Nature

Seeming to be on hold

Flag hangs silently waiting

Who? Will our next leader be?

Tanka

I am feeling a heavy stillness in the air today. No wind at all. Our Flag hangs silently. It’s eerie. It’s almost like nature and mankind are holding their breath awaiting this Election Day outcome. I shall pray and trust in God for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
