Aum

The trembling breeze,

The rustle of leaves,

The cooing of birds,

The droning buzz of flies,

The babbling of brooks,

The melody of the wind,

The pouring of rain

Nature’s pre-dawn concert,

a vibration of fleeting moments.

A single chord of stillness runs through the universe,

An endless hum, 

through which Nature whispers

in the voice of God. AUM.
