A New Creation

Bird standing in lake at sunset
This is a beautiful day.
The rain falls peacefully.
Trees spread their shade around the town.
The sun lights the sky at sunset.

I imagine the animals crawling in their burrows.
I am happy to listen to the songs of birds.
A butterfly passes by slowly.

My mind fills with a burst of hope.
Words cannot describe this glow of life.

My gratitude grows in this new creation.
