Gently In The Distance

The sky is trying to teach us something
if we are willing to listen

The rivers are speaking to us
we are just too busy to hear it

The wind is whispering into our ear
we just must be open to such a thing

The land is our neighbor
with news of the day

The rain, the streams, the rivers, the ponds
all forms of communication with us

The bird overheard
flying freely in the sky
just look
and learn

The soft gentle voice of the breeze
peacefully attempting to teach us;
never forcing

Then, he starts his tractor.

The loudness of humanity
attempting to muffle what life is about
but gently in the distance
I hear the trees rustle
