As much as big things
(Right now, Mother)
Upset me,

Small, almost inconsequential moments
Bring me joy & peace.

A rabbit nestled in the bushes
Eating his daily breakfast of greens.

An intricate nest in my mailbox
Built & claimed stake
By a mothering wren.

A cat purring in my lap.

A brief brush of my hand
Over an animal’s fur.

A gentle breeze
Taken by surprise
Like a light touch
Making my senses ignite.

A sunrise and sunset
With faint whispers telling me
What comes also goes.

A bird chirping
Bringing song to my soul.
