when to look out the bedroom window
becomes a gift in witnessing
the dance and symphony
between life and nature
over the pond into the distance
of other lives, mountains, and emptiness.
I sit in awed and marvel
between this moment and the next
curled up on my bed.
This overcast is a reminder
to go within quietness —
the vast stillness —
as it engulfs me in one second.
I am in love.
I am in complete surrender
of cool wetness
and so very grateful that I can be here
to travel the journey between
God and the earth
all while closing my eyes
and whispering a single prayer.
