Everyday Mystery

An everyday mysteryYou can’t know what I have to share
unless I speak. I know,
I know, it’s all loaded, the spiritual,
no way to cross that threshold with anyone
who hasn’t opened that door.
No way to offer such wine.
Or is there? Is a baby’s breath enough,
or a dew-covered tomato rising
out of brambled profusion
in the backyard, near the fig tree
spilling its jewels?

But then those moments come,
like sudden lightning
that quickens our hearts,
simple, simple exchanges
that meet their mark.
That matter. What will I see, feel, know,
contribute, and be fed by today if I watch
closely, present to the mystery
in all? The question
thrills me. And
that matters, too.
