Awestruck
By John Cannon

I step outdoors
on this glorious
spring morning

immediately
surrounded by

the throbbing pulse
of burgeoning life,

and I stand ―
awestruck ―
in reverence ―

with feelings
overflowing ―

humility
wonder
delight

but most deeply ―
gratefulness

for sky and space
for air and wind
for fire
for water
for earth,

for all the children
of these elements,

for the sun
and universe
that make all this
possible,

and,
most fundamentally,

for the mysterious,
unseen hands

behind it all.
