Say “Yes” to Today (revised)

Why would the brook
bother to run
if you’re not there
to see it?

If the mockingbird
sang 100 songs
who’s going to
listen to it?

Would the ground doves
stay on a wire
all day, and not
fly down for seed?

Would the day lilies,
with only one day,
believe their beauty
was wasted?

Healing lies in nature.
It’s nurturing for the soul.
We are all God’s creatures.
Or have we forgotten?
