Mindful ( After Mary Oliver )

God days, I call them—      
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 lake—       
this skeletal leaf           
~
