October Moment

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?
