We Thank You Sky for Your Blue

We thank you sky for your blue,
Also, breeze, for what you do:
Everything simple,
And too ordinary to be tried as true.

The sound of rain when we’re warm inside,
Purple shadows on the mountainside,
Help us to notice,
Open our eyes,
Give us grateful hearts,
And unclinging minds.

That we might be at one
And at peace when our story’s told:
As much a part of nature
As the beauty we behold.
