Not without design does God write the music of our lives. Be it
ours to learn the tune, and not be dismayed at the rests.
~ John Ruskin
On a bright hot Texas morning
You can hear the bees a-buzzing
Cicadas blend their voices
With the rustling of the leaves
The pine tree’s nighttime whisper has
Become a soft, brushed rhythm
Wildflowers dance beside the road;
Cars in passing stir a breeze.
Mockingbird joins in the chorus,
Sings the songs the flowers dance to,
Grazing cows find shelter
In the shade of spreading trees.
