POEM: WONDER (3 JANUARY 2016)
Wonder sees beyond the physical world,
with eyes beyond eyes.
Wonder makes us still and tremble in awe,
we consider our lowliness and humility of heart.
Wonder is never small, never a dim light and never disappoints.
it can be fleeting, momentary, even fragile, but it is never meaningless.
It is the sun rising above the horizon as the cool wind blows.
It is a flock of birds making huge circles in the sky as they prepare to migrate.
It is the friendly hand extended by a stranger when we stumble.
It is a baby’s innocent smile, a lover’s kiss, a kindly word or deed.
It is the knowing, empathetic, tearful glance when words fail.
It is the unexpected: the daily synchronicities of the Creator we so often ignore in our busy-ness.
Wonder is the Creator’s gift to us to declare who He is,
what He is doing, and how He loves us.
And, as we observe and so participate in wonder,
it is His way of including us in His never-ending cosmic dance of creation.
