I'm taking a few moments to ponder and be still
I'm silencing my being and quieting my will
I'm listening to the wisdom that whispers around
I love to hear the universe and all creations sound
Even the flowers who are quiet and small
Have special messages for one and for all
They let out their beauty without any show
Love is the secret that helps them to grow.
Without speaking a word the trees instruct me
About the prudence behind great flexibility
Being willing and ready to stretch and to bend
Are the lessens they'd have me comprehend.
Such are the ways that creation teaches me
To value the virtues, living simple as can be
For its not in the fanfare that wisdom is found
But in silent humility that whispers around .
