View from my Balcony by Gregg Hake
Undulating grasses, green pond welcoming landing egret.
Deer nibbling on grass, ears perked and heads turned toward unfamiliar sounds.
Cumulus building, painting sky white and shadowing mountains in blue.
Every inch, teeming with life: chirping, creaking, croaking, splashing and dashing,
View from my balcony urges me to remembrance of life’s infinite wealth.
