reverent

i look at the sky.

and i have been told
that tons of water
float lightly-looking
above my head
on top of a sea of atmosphere.
and i walk at the bottom
of the sky,
feet on solid ground.

and i have been told
the dizzying speed at which
the earth rotates
on its axis,
and hurtles through space
revolving around the sun.
and i want to lay down
flat
on something solid
and hold on.

and i see the violet
blossoming all delightful,
beautiful,
fragile,
resilient.

i sense the wonders
in wind,
earth,
fire,
and water.

i have witnessed the miracle
of human birth,
delicate wholeness,
marvelous helplessness.

and i am in awe
of One
whose wisdom
invented it all.
