The Day Spills Open…

The day spills open like a gift unwrapped.
Silence is filled with a bird call chorus.
Let it hold you for a moment enrapt.
Stand in the meadow with me — closer dear,
Breathe in the piney scent of the forest.
The day spills open like a gift unwrapped.
The pale blue sky, cloudless and clear
Is brushed at the edges with rose and rust.
Let it hold you for a moment enrapt.
Hold your heart wide open without any fear.
Feel it beat calmly, with joy and with trust.
The day spills open like a gift unwrapped.
There will be time, later, to leap like a deer.
Stand quietly now, don’t make a fuss.
Let it hold you for a moment enrapt.
The sun kisses dewy grass, erasing its tears.
Drink in the stillness — this moment for us.
The day spills open like a gift unwrapped,
Let it hold you for a moment enrapt.
