  • Gifts and Graces (for RhymeLovingWriter)

    We pass through this world but once.
    Stephen Jay Gould


    That we are here
    At all to wonder and stargaze
    Is the most profound blessing
    Beyond explanation



    Impact Events
    Mass Extinctions and The Great Dying
    Species that arose before and fell
    Like ocean waves



    Whatever propitiations
    The ancients brought to the Temple
    Was not sufficient gift
    For the generosity of breath



    The seven oceans
    Whose perpetual waves offer up
    True consolation and bathe
    Our spirits in grace



    I know that billions
    Of improbabilities brought us here
    The miracle of you coming near
    Is truth I can touch

    Exquisitely Tanner - you write well of beauty! Thank you for the nod, dear poet friend!

        Gifts and graces
        without overt
        religious traces.
        Science tickled
        in all
        the right places.
