As I sit to morning prayer,
this is what I see.
And I am grateful for the breath
of beauty set before me.
It's just a tree. It's just snow.
It's just a sky of blue.
It's just a breath-giving moment of peace
I wanted to share with you.
This is life. This moment, this time
this scene of chilly grace.
This is the world where I choose to reside -
This beautiful, happy place.
