Great Mystery

Now rain is falling
earth swells in delight
trees clamor in the wind for drops
birds mutter quietly
in the distance a thunder sets out
to warn of dangers unseen
butterflies cling to eave and limb
all wait, breathing in
the now Nature has brought
and I am left
believing there is a lesson here
some great mystery to unravel
in the simplicities of this morning
but I all I can do is be delighted
reach out my hand from open door way
to feel the drops upon my skin
smiling, even as a siren echoes out over tree and roof
in warning,
I sigh out whispers
unspoken and answers
with no question.
