Greetings Fir Tree and Your Simple Goodness – poem by Terrill Welch

Greetings Fir Tree and Your Simple Goodness

The briefness of winter sun,
Met by the upturned corners
Of my mouth.

Free, for just a moment,
From any monetary value.
Free from any request.
Free from all, except today,
A quiet Sunday,
A late rising dawn.

Greetings fir tree
And your simple goodness.

© Terrill Welch Dec. 3, 2012

And, here is the tree and in the moment that inspired these words for a Zen Sunday.
