can you hear her?
Nature speaks in Spring
when plants begin to wake,
seeds stretching, reaching, beneath the warming earth.
Nature speaks in Summer
bright, busy days, somnolent nights
bees buzz, crickets chirp, sparrows sing.
Nature speaks in Autumn
preparing for sleep, cool breezes blow,
leaves fall from trees, dance ’round the yard.
Nature speaks in Winter
cold creeps in, snow crunches
the promise of spring to come.
are you listening?
A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer,
it sings because it has a song.
~ Maya Angelou
