Sitting in my backyard

these days, birdbath, bees, poetry, nature, steven humphreys

These days, I ask for


How I love the natural world.

it never fails to renew my spirit.

just sitting in my backyard.

surrounded by this simplicity

makes me new again.

it brings a feeling of agelessness

to my old bones, all within

the presence of that

magical vibration.

I sit there hoping some

thirsty bird will drop by

for a cold drink from my


for this, I am eternally grateful.

but, to live forever

wrapped in greenery of grass and trees

a warm slow breeze

the blueness of sky

and warming rays of sun

would be heaven on earth.
