By Stacie Eirich

Songbird of Spring

Exuberant with the breath and life and music of spring,
she dances in glistening sunshine,

her jubilation bright with dawn,
her wonder renewed with cherry-blossoms and chickadees,

twirling, jumping, gliding —
a goldfinch flitting her wings,

soaring in joyous refrain, 
brilliant rays of light dancing with her flight!

Artistry of Life

Alluring, the radiant colors 
in sunsets

Magnificent, the wondrous patterns 
of stars

Resplendent, the fine threads 
of a spider's web

Dazzling, the painting of clouds 
upon the sky's canvas

Glorious, the sounds of many voices 
lifted together in song

Delightful, the feeling of cool rain 
upon skin

Wondrous, the tastes of fresh strawberries 
in spring

Marvelous, the flight of a chick 
from its nest

Delicate, the artistry of life —
the wonder of our world.

Celestial Tapestry

Let us reach to taste the stars,
drink long of the deep and tremulous night,
exhale her elegance slowly,
breathe beacons of light into darkness,
sing sonatas of wondrous delight.

Let us look to see the moon,
bask in her glow full and tender,
catch glimmers of celestial magnificence,
bathe in showers of astonishing resonance,
speak poems of marvelous splendor.

Let us listen to hear the music,
seize a sparkle from a universe of infinite gleams,
comprehend the many patterns in a celestial tapestry,
revel in colorful harmonies woven through a vast cosmos,
share stories of sumptuous starlight and tales of delicious dreams.
