IGWRT's Sunday Challenge "Nature's Cathedral"

Nature's Cathedral

Like a cat
with one eye open,
tranquility naps
a few minutes longer.

I inhale, watch
a drowsy mist unfold,
stretch her arms,
and conduct creation's
silent morning symphony
with a mellifluousness
I would envy
if it wasn't so healing.

Laughter and
pitter patter
of the multitudes
descend upon the pier.

No shushing, no reprimands
in nature's cathedral
this Sunday morning,

however, kitty cat
has vacated
the adirondack chair.
