Blessings

As I lay on the forest floor, 
gazing at the starry sky,
I wonder about the blessings,

                 ~that are numerous,
                   than the stars passing by.


The sodden forest ground,
the smell of ferns and fronds,
chirping night voices,

~ earth's blessings,
   and bond,
   with creatures roaming along.


Soft brumal winds,
their tinkling hints,
snowflakes floating around,
jewels of wintry crown,

~ seasonal blessings,
   lovingly,
   showered down.

  8. The language in these lines is so delicate:
    'Soft brumal winds,
    their tinkling hints,
    snowflakes floating around,
    jewels of wintry crown'.
