Today I am grateful for my backyard
It’s not a formal garden.
I don’t sit back there often…
but the deer are unafraid.
If I walk back through the woods
there is a stream
and I can choose a rock to sit on
while I meditate.
The squirrels try their best to get seeds from the feeder
the birds are entertaining,
even the hawks!
The fire pit will be warm on fall nights.
If I don’t feel like going outside,
I can see the bird feeder from my sofa
in my peaceful serenity room.
It’s a win-win.
