I rest my head on the soft, green pastures,
to smell mornings dew as the sun begins to rise.
With my short, stubby legs that flinch at the earth’s tickle,
and my large, round belly that obscures the sun from my eyes.
Though I feel it’s presence on my skin,
as my arm starts to get warm.
I feel the love around me,
in the arms of nature’s swarm.
As these now rested eyes,
awake to see
what this day provides.
As my eyes fall on the sky,
to greet this day
and this feeling that resides.
Love and gratitude.
