Poem: Open Your Eyes (C. Ezard)

Inspired by Katie Harder’s song ‘Drink It In’. A meditation for a bush walk.

Open your eyes
Let in the light
Look to the skies 
Just before night

The colours bright 
The horizon glows
A heavenly sight 
Clouds with halos

Drink it all down
Down to your soul
Bring it deep within
Let it make you whole

Close your eyes
Hear the sounds
Creature murmurs arise
Silent stand your ground

Gentle the breeze
Quiet bird song
Nature’s at ease
In it you belong

Drink it all down
Let all else go 
Let God be found 
And quiet joys flow
