For this Life (Gratitude)

Bound by the earth and stars
Which is to say, alighted by the
Offering of full freedom
 
I walk along the shore
Guided by the soft and roaring
Motion of the ocean’s waves
 
I turn inward to find
What’s true, I blossom out
In turn, under moon’s wisdom
 
I wade through fields, awed
By the creatures I find there,
All this life generating life
 
I fall to the ground, wondrous,
Free, amazed by my presence
In all of this, my part to play,
 
As gratitude, not for the first time,
Fills me, and I vow: I will soak it in,
Lap it up, make use of precious time.
