It's So Easy – Zen Poetry

The soft smell of the pine trees floating on the breeze
The birds shyly singing their songs
The snow melting away
And the earth is peaking through
Everything is at ease
Revealing the essence naturally
What is there to be done?
The sun shines
And the snow melts
It’s so easy
