Oh, Serene Wonder.

A place above all,

the Sun that graces my Horizon.

I turn my face to the big red sun,

a smoldering coal in a tranquil sky.


A gentle breeze brings me a warm kiss.

It brings me psalms of birds,

Somber songs of Kendrick.

I think of how I remain Humble,

in hopes that I don’t die of thirst,

in hopes that someone will Sing About Me.


The scent of nature flows to me,

grass and mulberries cavort.

Blessing to my nose.

A pleasure of hearts.

I am home.


A place I named.

A place i learned to love,

a place that learned to love me.

All that I ever was,

All that I am,

All I’ll be.
