  • Before retiring
    I open the window
    so to hear
    the babbling waters
    my lullaby
    played by the beaver's dam,
    Sleep comes quickly
    As I inhale the warm night air.

    To the rhythmic beat of the woodpecker ,
    the early birds' song,
    and the gentle ring of the chimes
    I waken easily,
    Breathe in the morning air
    still warm.

    I rise and open more
    reminding myself
    winter remains.
