As we gather

round this day,

storm clouds sitting,

waiting patiently,

for the moment

as if then…

unleashing torrents,

we are cleansed.

Feeling emotion

crying in the dark,

seeing the sunrise

bringing light.

This we know

as sure as night,

today is here

to give us hope.

Nature’s busy

in order to survive,

buzzing bees

and butterflies,

lend its beauty

to our eyes,

breathe in deeply,

we are alive!
