How can something so tiny be so vast? A single moment, a simple question And my whole outlook changed. It is a cool day in autumn The sky a perfect blue and cloudless The trees a glorious blend of green and yellow and orange The water has gentle ripples The water lilies are green and yellow I sit in peace but am not alone People walk by enjoying the lake I hear some crows. I don’t think I yet grasp The grandness of this moment A new direction lies before me If I but surrender. Can I do it?
