Have you ever heard a rose bloom?

The whisper of petals awakening at dawn,

The sigh of contentment as it lifts its face skyward,

Opening its heart to the sweet kiss of the sun.

        Every time i hear a newborn baby cry, or touch a leaf, or see the sky - then i know why, i believe.
        Those are the words of a song on the radio when i was a kid, sung by the bachelors. Your words reminded me of this.
        Up to you what you believe in, there's a spiritual sense within your words.

          I'll have to look up the song, I'm not sure I've heard of that group. There's a song out now that the woman says her music is her church. I guess I'm kinda like that. Music, nature, and writing is where I feel I can truly be myself. I love my family more than life but there are demons inside me that I can't show anyone, even them. I feel spirituality but not in the way most people talk about. I believe in God but not in the way most people talk about. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. I love when people put in something extra, a little personal side comment. Thank you!

            Very good write, the senses can bring all emotions into us.

              I agree. And if we open ourselves up to it, we can feel more from the things and people around us. Nature truly does nurture our spirit. Thank you for your nice comment!
