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?
