I Find myself Lucky - May 29, 2021

we have mountains so gentle

they caress water from the eyes

others that blow up and spew death

to those drawn to that charm


rains that can mist leaves gloriously shiny

or rip trees out by the roots

and wind that can shatter the lives

of those that love its gentler breath


oceans that act like the most

generous and kind neighbors

then reveal their greedy side

and take everything you own


so I find myself lucky


so lucky


to have never faced nature

with all my senses squeezed shut
