There Are Those That Give

There Are Those That Give

Rain falls
and the flowers are just
right in the very moment
where they are
to receive
and I simply observe
and absorb
and my heart is suddenly filled
with exuberance
and has blossomed fully well.
And I witness the overture of
poetry that has no words,
that is better felt, better witnessed.
And then I remember
that one marvelous afternoon
in the absence of birds
I was at peace with myself
and the world
and then a soft, pale sunlight appears
and I know
I just happen to know
the language of the rain
and that of the pale sunlight
as they both speak to my heart.
