soft rain falls : to breathe

a soft rain

falls

gentleness in my soul

after a flurry of busyness

as you come

cutting everything back

sad news on the radio

of exhausted health workers

pleading for mercy

from a government turned deaf

while arguments continue

over tennis players

and vaccinations

gratitude in my soul

for this ability to be

quiet

to touch base with nature

to hear

the beautiful song of a bird

above me

in the apple tree

singing of life

as I feel the cool breeze

reminding me

to get out of my head

into my body

and breathe
