In Awe


Nothing matters but the sunset
The sunrise over the horizon
The crescent moon and stars
The sun’s warmth
The rainbow of colors.

All else is perpendicular
As if we climb mountains
That sometimes take us to the precipice
And sometimes to the plateau
A contest of wits, courage, and stamina.

Comforting relationships and loving partners
Kisses that bless a newborn or spouse
Embraces for those who are cherished and those in pain
Forgiveness for those who transgressed
These are valuable virtues.

Wisdom is knowing the difference between
Love of diamonds and love of man
Accepting that Grey is more powerful than black or white
Knowing that Ignorance is the epitome of apathy
And standing in awe of God’s creations.
