    nature has her ways...

    and high atop the mountain
    nestled betwixt indigenous trees
    the snow melts slowly down gentle slopes
    turned brown by winter

    standing on my porch, i watch
    through magnified glasses
    loving birds fly down to
    the feeding post, dipping
    their beaks ~ and fly away
    high into lush evergreens
    where their hungry babies wait...

    i see a squirrel race across
    an open patch of grass, and up onto
    the bark of a tall pine ~
    he disappears before my eyes

    i hear music all around me
    filling my space ~
    the sounds that only nature
    makes...

    high atop the mountain, nestled
    betwixt indigenous trees,
    i wonder if the snow could
    ever rival this meltdown
    inside of me...

    ...Mother Nature surely has her ways...

    sometimes I dare to ask

    "where DOES she get these words?"
    and then I realize I already know the answer.

    Your nature is a blessed thing, Ms. A.

    ah alyce
    you can write
    your imagery
    your way with words
    you can write.
    i am so glad my spirit tells me
    to go back 22 or 23 pages
    and discover
    other voices
    your voice
    thank you
