Regardless of the years, the simple gifts come as a result of living one's life, not just putting up with its insistence. (Image by masterfilecom)

Reverse Engineering Innocence


To know of hummingbird stillness
To feel the pine needle crunch beneath winter snows
To hear the embracing stretch of pistils weeping
To see infinite jest in cumulus billowing
To touch a beach strewn pebble with one's caress for life

Such becomes

The rebirth of childhood
The wisdom of Life's carefree shovel and bucket
The wonder of nature's patient love in order to live
