Quietly standing outside my door
A walnut tree with fruits galore
Speaking silently with its sway
So many things to give away...
Bamboo shoots stand up nearby
And with their reach call out the sky
Providing shade and shelter too
A beautiful fence for me and you..
Cardinals, robins, blue jays too
Romp around and fly on through
Greeting morning and heralding day
Feathered winged ones: with much to say
Darkened clouds drape skies above
Signs of rain and signs of love
Providing moisture for the plants
Storm clouds clap so earth can dance..
And inside pots that vary in size
Vegetable plants delight my eyes
With their fruits and foliage green
They're a reminder of the Great Unseen.....
