Gesture II

As the first breath of dawn
gently touches the leaves,
I listen
to these woods whisper 
welcome to the morning:

"Thank you for this glorious, 
life-giving light,"
they seem to pray.

Praise may sound like this.
Who is to say?

I close my eyes;
now a willing participant
in this overheard prayer,
this graceful,
grateful gesture.
