Mindful ( After Mary Oliver )

God days, I call themó     † †
creation aligned † † † †
with mindful being † † †  
despite contrast; † † † †  
† † † †  
such as the truth † † † †
of this simple moment: † † † †
no accolade, award † † † †
or holiday exists as reason † † † †  
to appreciate its breath; † † † †  
† † † †  
only Life itself: † †  
winter grass † †
a frozen lakeó  † †  
this skeletal leaf †† † † †  
~ † † †  
† † †
