Though Earthbound

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.

~

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
