I felt a change.
Almost as if I could see it,
In the way the leaves fall,
And the way the rays strike all.
The leaves, magnificent how they give way,
To their majestic fall,
Almost as if in happy resignation,
To the new green, the reincarnation.
The rays, how royal is their golden glow!
Strike both the high and low,
Make clear every ripple in the seas,
The ones that brighten even the tiniest bees.
I felt a change,
Now, I see a bit clearer.
The squirrels that run a bit nearer,
And the ants that climb without fear.
The playful squirrels,
Which would rather jump and ride,
Than attack and bite,
And those which wouldn’t dare sit tight.
The determined ants,
Which do not get shook,
With any fall or climb.
Meticulous as they are, all the time.
Seeing deeper, I notice every movement.
Of all things bright and dull.
Oh, I see everything in this moment,
How is it I never saw any better?
Is it because I have time,
Or has time slowed to let it all sink in?
But no, the runner doesn’t stop ticking,
And no, I certainly do not have spare time.
Maybe, I owe the extra vigilance,
To this sheet which is white as snow.
My craving to blot it with ink,
Led me to see a bit deeper even in the afterglow.
Finally, I am thinking of something,
Other than schedules and work,
And the shines and bling,
Something, I’ve never felt before.
Maybe it’s always like this,
You get struck with something,
When you probably expect nothing.
In this moment, I find bliss.
