Alive

leaves glisten with morning dew
as they absorb the brightness of the sun

a cool and gentle breeze caresses
and brings a smile to the corners of my mouth
while it sets the leaves in motion

as if they wave hello
I greet them in return
with a spark of sunshine that glitters in my eye

even the grass is happy this morning
in its smallest of acts
glad to just be alive

and so am I
