A Window Away

I look out my window what do I see
a cardinal, a blue jay and a chickadee

They sit on my feeder or in my tree
they're fun to watch and company

When singing their pretty song
my worries and cares are gone

Hummingbirds enjoy my flowers
succulent nectar they love to devour

The chipmunk fills his cheeks
with the seeds that he seeks

He scurries away back to his den
then comes back for seeds again

Rabbits run, hop. and play
on this wonderful sunny day

Mother Nature is a window away
I am thankful for this every day

I do like your poem.
I often overlook the simple beauty of life when I am running around do my own thing. This poem reminds me to stop and enjoy the simple beauty . God's beauty is present every moment if we just stop and "smell smell the Roses."
