To lay upon the grass

surrounded by blades of green

the fragrant flowers empower me

to lay engulfed by nature

the stream nearby sings

birds dance with the wind

trees sway to the outdoor melody

the wilted flower repairs itself

that soft broken melody of life

the sky hugs the ground in its infinite horizon

roots entwine into the earth as if they were

waiting to be shaken free

longing for the warmth of the sun to kiss upon its cheek

encircled by the comforting soil that nurtures every cell

the green life reaches towards the sun waiting for its love

waiting for another day to bask in its glory

together they make a symphony if you listen carefully

what a wonder it would be

to lay upon the grass
