Heaven on Earth Is…

Listening to each chirp

from the birds nearby

As I awake at 6:00 a.m.

Inhaling the sumptuous

black tea, vanilla bean

hot water and honey

aroma present in my cup.

Staring into the eyes

of my soulmate’s face

while we video chat.

Breathing in the scent

of a colorful array of

freshly bloomed flowers.

Watching my students

smile and hearing them

laugh with heartfelt joy

as we enjoy this precious

moment together with love.

Listening to the flute

And the drums

of my ancestors

being blown and hit.

Heaven on Earth is…

Knowing,

Recognizing,

Appreciating,

The small,

Precious things

In this life.
