There is peace in the breeze-
a gentle whisper of hope
for those with hearts
to listen.

Harmony in the trees-
a soft reminder of relationship;
we are stronger when
we stand connected.

Laughter in the love of a flower-
each petal an example of
the joy it strives to bring.

And consequence the lesson
of nature’s interdependence-

who we are in this world
how we choose to treat others
the love we withhold
or the love we give

Become the nucleus of choice
for the beings that we’ll be.
