Have you ever been kissed by the sun
and felt the sweat on your skin
as you reached down into the earth
to see new plant life begin?
Have you felt sweet rain on your face
as your eyes looked up into heaven,
and closed them to savor the memory
like you did when you were eleven ?
Have you ever seen honeysuckle vines
filled with flowers and heavenly smells,
touched the soft petals of a rose,
or walked through a field of blue bells?
Have you ever built a camp-fire
at night under a starry sky,
gazed into the heart of the flames,
and felt that God was nigh?
Have you ever cradled a child
close to your heart and knew,
they would be loved forever
and cherished deeply by you?
These are the moments we seek
when we need to replenish the soul.
Such mindful moments enrich our lives,
and help us again become whole.
