Full of Wonder
Crickets cricketing loudly,
but not visible
to my eyes.
Crows squawking innocently,
but who knows if they did something nasty
beyond my eyesight?
Steam rises up in the air
as we breathe,
vanishes into the brisk air
even before I blink my eyes.
Leaves rustling in the wind,
small but still alive,
sacrificing themselves for the big old tree.
but I do.
