Today I am happy to simply be alive
To see this most glorious day
Marking the change of another season
Another shift on the wheel of the world

Of which I am fully
And consciously aware

Planting seeds of wisdom
In the form of words
Scattering them to the winds
To land where they may
And grow where they will

No bars can restrain my spirit this day
No chains to bind me to thy self
This day I am a child of the universe

This day I am bringing out my wings

To soar wherever the warm breeze guides
Gathering a bounty on my lone journey
Of the natural mysteries and beauty
Of our world


Today I am thankful
To simply be alive
