The Perfect Gift

Ripples flowed across the water from the gentle wind that blew
Coming from the north as cold as snow and dripping with morning dew

Ducks pop up from the silver surface, surprising all that reside above
Were they searching for some fish to eat or simply playing in the sun

All the while the squirrels frolic in the trees, like excited children
Zig zapping from branches that formed a canopy for them to play in

Last nights rain stood motionless in the confines of its muddy home
Only moving slightly from a small insect or from a boy out on a roam

A woman stands at the water’s edge, aware of all of this and more
She sees it all as a well-played symphony and plans to ask for a encore

It’s Natures best in all it’s form and she feels blessed just to be a part of it
She wishes she had both wings and gills to really appreciate this perfect gift

    Good thoughts–enjoyed the zig zapping squirrels and the tranquil natural scene. Could use a bit of editing for clarity– “encore” instead of “oncore”, “a part” instead of “apart” for example. But really like the images you present and the easy and free rhyme scheme 🙂

    Wonderful. I especially enjoy the first stanza. It’s a great introduction — I can picture it.
