I am not sleeping well and it’s been a winter of discontent
I’ve gotten sloppy at reaching out and unable to connect
I know that someday soon things will get better
Today I wake up peacefully to the woodpecker’s jackhammer
A night of bad dreams and anxiety can stream right along
When I wake up and hear the songbird’s song
That’s what nature does, it grounds me
embraced by the beauty and the songs that surround me.
