Thank you for the moments,
the life lived within a minute;
little snippets of time, holding
reflections, a world within each
stroke of time, within a grain
of sand upon the shore,
a life lived within the beat
of a bird’s wing, or a heart.
Holding each moment
close to the heart, warming,
sunlight illuminating water,
water whispering over stones,
telling secrets of eons past;
the secrets within each family;
A drop of rain refracting
the world, a world of dreams.
Emotional outpouring, a single
blade of grass heralds the spring;
a sea of green rippling in the breeze,
washing the shore, sandstone
outcroppings reaching for sky,
a blue-fire sky searing the eyes,
eyes that seek the light, finding
the sacred in each moment.
