Connections: September 21

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAStill

I stood with the happy dirt of the garden in my knuckles

noted the sky

marveled

at my singular place:

that lavish snowy dowager cloud

its raiment billowing winglike across the blue

was only that.

This was no explosion, no fire, no loss of home or life.

It was just a cloud.

Still

I stood and thought about that.

Why me?

Why am I so blessed? And what do I do about it?

On this International Day of Peace, I wish you, dear reader,

and me

a moment of peace

and insight into what we do with it.
