The Art of Living


I am making an art of watching
the grass grow, of noticing
birds building a tiny nest
in the corner of my roof, of
ants marching single file. I
now pay attention to crickets
chirping, bees buzzing, the
rooster’s lusty crow. I savor
one sweet grape letting its flavor
rest on my tongue. Each moment
is precious, sacred when we learn
to pay attention to the gift
of life we have been given.
