Gifts of Wonder

Found a butterfly wing
On my walk today.
Placed it in my left hand
And it blew away.

I saw a large owl
Fly across a field of hay.
I knew the sound of silence
In a different way.

I watched wheat dancing
In the evening wind,
It seemed a moment of beauty
That would never end.

I saw the sunlight shine
Upon a drop of dew,
Beheld a jewel of beauty
That's esteemed by few.

I saw a streak of light
In a moonless sky,
And the universe changed
Before my eyes.

I heard a word of truth
In a quiet room,
And it did not speak
Of impending doom.

These are gifts of wonder
Sent to you and me,
And have been on their way
Throughout eternity.
