5 April – The benefactors

Thank you to the neighbours who hang wind chimes in the trees
which serenade my footsteps with every breath of breeze.

Thank you to the gardeners that tend their front plots
but never fully know the fragrant joy they have brought.

Thank you to the farmers with footpaths through their land
which bring me right up close to tiny new born lambs.

Thank you to the wildlife just getting on with living,
completely unaware of the wonder it is bringing.

God bless the local benefactors who fill my daily strolls
with a thousand little gifts to gird my fragile soul.
