2 AM in Beautiful

2 AM in Beautiful by Joe Reid Kirby III

The frogs are obviously having a party tonight,

In the field just aside my window,

Croaking away,

Drunk from the gallons of fresh rainwater,

Shared by the rainforests all day …

The crickets, grasshoppers, and other small friends are chiming in too,

Adding to the background music of nature,

So soothing to the soul …

How beautiful it is to be a poet in this present moment,

Aware of the natural songs which surround us,

Able to capture this snippet in time,

And share it with another curious mind,

Welcome to Beautiful …

It is a place,

And this is it …

Beautiful extends from here to there,

Here atop the continent of South America,

To wherever there may be,

Your energy alone multiplies this existence,

The greater home of you and me,

Witness the other side of the windows to the soul,

The eyes are but the windows of this home,

It’s the Being inside that’s actually looking through them to see.
