Awake and behold the day I've prepared!
Okay, okay, okay, I say as I put on my bathrobe and slippers,
shuffling to the kitchen for my first cup of coffee.
Outside on the back porch, I wipe the sleep from my eyes
and hear the buzz of a hummingbird before I see it,
diving with another friend as they land on my feeder.
Then a sparrow flits about like a bat, zigzagging through the air
as though it were on its own private roller coaster.
Eventually it lands in an elm, freshly budded out and dressed
in full green.
The hummers have moved on to bright yellow violas, planted in
hanging baskets next to the feeders.
I smile as I head back into the house and flop myself on the couch,
sliding my computer onto my lap.
But something catches my eye out the front window,
it looks like a horse, but the lines aren't quite right.
I get up to investigate, get a closer look,
only to find it's an elk. By this time,
three more have joined her. Clumsily, they meander
down the country road, at least, until our four dogs catch their scent.
They bolt for the elk, and in a blink of the eye, all four jump
the neighbor's five foot fence. From a standing position!
These "clumsy" creatures just fly up and over,
leaving the dogs and me to just stare.
The sky has lost the pink of sunrise by now;
the shining sun highlights patches of snow
still hidden in the crevices of the peaks of our mountains.
Two hours of my morning raced by as minutes. I've not even thought
of a second cup of joe.
Then I recall the first words heard in my spirit,
Awake and behold the day I've prepared!
I thank Him for all He's created
and eagerly await
the rest of my day.
Update: k, title is "Behold"
