Though earthbound, I am lost amongst the sky blue,
Intricately woven into this tapestry that is nature.
Miniscule in comparison to the whole I am no less vital.
Without being, this picturesque world would be unrecognizable.
What I see as familiar would cease to exist without that
blade of grass, that oak tree, the bird singing in the eaves,
the lake where I skipped stones, the house that I grew up in,
my kindergarten teacher, the teachers that tolerated me,
the bus driver, the postman delivering the mail,
the plowman keeping our streets clear in winter.
Without any of these what would this life look like;
Much different I propose.
Without you or I what path would our parents lives have taken;
Surely a far cry from the one our history tells.
Lest we question our significance in this place and time
we should not!
We are each a thread in this fabric,
Significant and wonderful and cardinal by our simple existence.
