Gratitude


We receive

Knowledge and understanding from Science, 

Insight and vision from poetry,

Joy and ecstasy from music,

Love and warmth from relationships,

Laughter and mirth from humor.

Many also get

Inner peace and spiritual fulfillment from religion.

We become aware of all this because we are conscious beings.

We are blessed with a little of all this

During a slice of temporal eternity

In the patch of space wherein we live and die.

For all this,

I am grateful to the Unfathomable Mystery to whose presence

Evolution and cultural upbringing have made me sensitive.
