Oh the sweet lullaby of the rain
Soothes the searing scars of summer

The earth sucks up her sweetness
Swelling with her sweet succulence
To exhale the breath of
Fresh lavender and sweetgrass

As I stand here basking in the freshness
My soul partner, a hummingbird
Grasps my attention
Chirping Chirping Chirping
Telling me to pay attention

I do
He flies away
I pay attention

Be Still
Listen — Watch
Sing, Dance, Be Free
Don’t let the shackles of humanity
Bind you

Listen to your gut
Move through the discomfort of life
And see the brilliance that you are
