Have you ever seen such a world as this one?
In the giant chaos of a sky
a spring sun thaws the hills,
quickness to the world,
like animated gods
on their way to something.
There’s new pink blossom,
the whistle and rustle of a land awakening.
There’s life! Have you ever seen it so?
Your question is the wrong one;
the world was ever thus.
Best ask yourself,
when were your jaded eyes
last free from dust?
The world is out there waiting for us. It is always there, laid out for us all to see. All we have to do is notice.
