I walk in wonder of the smells from the trees so tall.
I wish I could send them to you as I walk in awe.
The birds are chirping, the wind is calm.
God is there as we’re told in the 139th of Psalm.
I follow the smells down the hill and then I hear it’s sound.
A small but lovely flowing creek just waiting to be found.
And from the top of the hill, the prettiest sight, with flowers, big trees and rocks, until I looked further below.
And the refuse I saw angered my heart and brought sorrow for me to know.
I began to notice, close by, the piling of brush and gravel making a path to clear.
I knew the work was to restore, and the beauty was once again near.
I let the wonder smells guide me home knowing beauty would come again.
I prayed, I thought, how blessed I was, to see this beauty from within.
