The sound of wild geese honking
resounds from the Chama River,
reminding me of the ever presence
of all things holy given freely
by a generous and humble God.
Skittery long-eared, cotton-tailed rabbits
deliberately chewing their breakfast greens,
now take the time to lead us onward
on the hidden path to truth.
Nature seduces a ready heart
longing to be one with life
lived abundantly and bravely confident
in God's sure and raucous love.
