To See and Hear With Your Heart

I stood on the bench and looked out over the prairie.  From my new vantage point, I could see far more into the distance than I ever could have believed.

I was able to see the tress huddles together and the fields of grass warmed by the sun.  I could hear with clarity the birds and insects joined in a choir, singing their evening songs.

I breathed the evening air filled with a mixture of earthy scents.

This was what it was to be alive.  To see and hear with your heart.

As I watched the sun slip lower in the sky, coloring the landscape with a radiant glow, I was a bit sad the day was coming to a close.

I almost wished I could wrap this moment into a gift and save it for the times I forgot that life was beautiful.
