Eclipse

So many natural

wonders

pass us by

as we lose

ourselves

in lists and imperatives,

obligations and striving.

Yet if we open ourselves

to ponder

and be moved

by nature

it fosters a

sense of connection

with life.

I am here

in this place.

Also, gratitude

at the gifts

I am given

that, graced,

I do not earn.

Such a focus can

eclipse

and relativise

what would consume

me

and my days

while adding

stress and anxiety

and little else.
