Petals float in tiny streams,

My thoughts in these moments stilled.

    Beautiful visual. Nature stills our energy to renew it.

    Sometimes seeing nature at work and in movement is a language all of its own...I think it communicates soul to soul with us in stillness like you said in your poem so eloquently.
