Small Things

Dawn comes
with a faint lightness
on the eastern horizon
before the splendour
of a yellow sun rising beyond the night

Morning is heralded
with one bird’s cry
a clarion call sounding
in the clear air
raising a vibrant chorus

The thaw of winter snow
with one small rivulet
as tentative rays of light glisten
over the frozen drifts

Spring emerges
with the budding of a lifeless branch
and the first faint piercing blades of green
new life appearing
through the dormant earth

So it is with the heart’s seasons
Changes begin
with the small and tenuous
the fragile, unexpected moments
of peace and wonder
May your heart know the pleasure
of small things
until we see the joy of the Lord’s presence
