OctPoWriMo #29: Lightness of Being

If I could be one
with nature, 
I would be here at dawn, 
rising with those mystery birds,
like leaves blown free
from that tree,
the horizon edged with blue,
the last of night
fading into this fresh today
with you.

Not enough time, I chant to myself as I start today’s writing, inspired by this lovely picture from Pixabay, reminded again of the importance of cherishing each day. You sleep. I type on the computer. Today begins.

Tomorrow's prompt: Me or Who I am.
