inspired by the poem 




Sunrise coming through

my window

little rays of rainbows

projected in the air.


Every new day brings

promise, hope, surprises

and new friends.


I glance at the tree

outside that same window

and see a beautiful peace sign

come together, by the curves

of one branch, and the lines of others.


Look for simple joys

to nourish our souls.


Peace within a tree,

if nature can do it, so can we.
