Making Sense Of Life's Wonders - Poem by Angela Marie Lara

I can hear it in the trees
as they bend and stretch.
I can see it in the stars
in their twinkling brightness.
I can feel it in the air
while it whispers across my skin
and runs fingers through my hair.
I can smell it
in the first crack of thunder
before the rain falls.
I can taste it
in every glistening snowflake
drifting lazily to the earth's floor.

It is nature... life's wonders

All around us
and we would be wise to appreciate it...
Linger in every moment
Cherish each passing second
and collect memories along the way
Learn from the good and the bad
Commit it all to your mind's eye
One day may not lead to another tomorrow
Live in the moment now.
