a simple joy
by RJ Heller

Tenderly placed, they caress and protect, home for the soon to be traveler
Cupped like a hand, balanced with sheer precision, the waiting begins
Bathed in light, warmth, and a mother’s constant care … soon …

Leaves will stretch, flowers yawn, wind will retreat and rest,
a cadence in simple rhythm, measured by time and place
one day will yield, from whiteness so perfect, magical
a pure and delicate gift of perfection, a present
to us and to all, who see with eyes open
nature present and lovingly revealed
as a simple joy
