THE WANDERING THOUGHTS OF A SMALL MAN.

I sit
in my enclosed garden
watching
the seasons pass by
in a flickering transition
of shadows and light,
a spectrum
of transitory moods,
fluttering
in mind’s eye view.
I note
the Sun’s sweeping leap
from east to west,
cleaning
Heaven’s ceiling
in one smooth wave
for the Stars and Moon
to make their nightly sail,
paving the way
for a new ascendency.
In a moment
of stillness
I contemplate
this eternal cycle
where my lifetime
of dawns and twilights
stands silently
with reverence
and humility.
In my lesser moments,
shrinking thoughts
float
on microcosmic dust,
diminutive in stature,
awash
in bewilderment
that I am
still worthy
of sacred breath.
Here
I fall
to clutch
Earth’s flesh
and inhale
thick loam
to carry
me back
into
Her
waiting arms.
