Being Present on an Early Spring Morning

when you hear birds sing
in springtime morning sunshine
your soul rejoices
and dances in holy celebration

give in, celebrate, be filled
with laughter, happiness, peace
close your eyes, sit without expectation
receive what is freely given

now, pass it on
give to someone you meet
this unexpected gift of peace
in so doing, you are filled once again
