The universe swirls

The universe swirls
a heart beats
a flower blooms
dawn appears
a hummingbird flies
the sky churns
leaves ruffle
a wave comes upon the shore
and children laugh.
– all is a dance.

A mother embraces
a butterfly’s wing flutters
– and the world is transformed.

Wisdom therefore,
may simply be to recognize
that we are exquisitely alive.

  1. I so love this poem, Kenza! The imagery is very beautiful with apparent simplicity that shows the deepest meaning of life. This is a chant to being alive and enjoying each and every moment of nature’s beauty.
