wonder enough?


let’s sense where we are

having caught this wave of earth

in controlled orbit

around a ball of fusion.


smell roses, tomatoes and puppies.

listen to bird call and waterfall.

feel spring breeze and lovers’ skin.

see ocean sunset from mountain peak.

taste ripe berries.


can we ever wonder enough?

do we not waste mental energy/time

mired in mundane/profane thought-trenches,

when all we do should lead us

back to this profound act of eternity

spilling out before us?
