Seen in a Different Way

This morning on my way to work
I saw the world a different way
Greeted by green pastures and trees
The same ones I pass day after day

Along a graveled road that winds
Between rolling hills of velvet green
A paradise filled with beauty
Just waiting to be felt and seen

As bright morning sun creeps aloft
Nesting songbirds sing what’s in their heart
A cloudless sky hangs overhead
While wildflowers display their art

Sheep and cattle quietly graze
Beneath plantations of spruce and pine
So thankful for the time I’ve had
And treat it all as if it were mine
