Gifts for Every Season of the Soul


My soul is deeply nourished by simple things.

My grandson’s smile.

The laughter of friends.

A pepper turning red on the vine.

The dance of leaves in a breeze.

The sun shining red through a broad canna leaf.

The scent of citronella leaves at the back door.

The prickly center of a coneflower.

The smooth texture and hint of sweetness in coconut yogurt.

The chirring of a wren as it guards its nest box.

Simple, sacred gifts,

each creating a stir of wonder,

each offering inner peace.”
