Who Put All This Goodness Here?


by Avril Amaya

at times, the beauty was so

overwhelming that all i could

do was watch and cry/

at times, the universe reveled with me

at its own majesty and cried too,

pouring warm rains on my body,/

i hold my face up to the sky

and receive the blessing/

the wind comes in to my ears, and

when i open my mouth, it ventures in there too,

not shy to explore every part of me, making the

grasses next to me dance in/

ecstasy, their little pink flowers are

perfect/

at times, i have to stop and sit on the side of the empty

road, and write of the beauty,

as it drips out of my every pore/

if we could all feel the painful

bliss of being alive with all this

goodness around/

who put all this goodness here?

i would like to thank them./

the sun gives me energy

the rain moves my legs faster

the wind pumps my heart like

a bellows/

the clouds race me and want to play

the earth receives me no matter

what i’m thinking about

unconditional love/

every day is earth day/

the worms, so much

wiser than we,

know this/

blessed be the dancing trees

blessed be the music of the heart

blessed be the wild cats

blessed be the watchful moon
