Whispering waters and Loblolly pines
Carolina wrens and Blaze red maples
Breath gave birth to My Father’s earth.
Spanish moss and Candleflame Lichen
Dissipate the earthen lands below
Where My Lord placed kindred beasts.
Warming beams creating patinas of color
Honeysuckle and White Butterfly Ginger
Blooming perfumed color into God’s air.
Plentiful harvests adorn tabletops fruitfully
Generations of seeds germinate family love
Rising clouds sparkle with gratitude for grace.
