Hush Now! Listen!


Hush Now! Listen!

Exuberantly Mother Nature
attempts to lure and entice
us with meandering mountain
streams and brooks. Comforting

sounds to our ears. The
creatures in tropical climates
offer varied sights and music
to our ears. Gazing at

soothing colors of birds, butterflies,
and a myriad of moths, we
are coaxed into wonderment.
There is mystery in the thick,

dense lush verdant forests.
Nature flourishes abundantly
in the tropics. Pleasing to the
eye. Warmer than here.


The delicate wings of
the tiny hummingbird
beguile as it pauses in
flight to kiss the blossom.

Ah, if only life were as
serene. I long for solitary
moments alone in nature.
Hush now. Listen, my soul!
