to know light

the world is immense and yet it is but a speck

in the vast emptiness of the expanding universe

and i am a smaller speck wandering on that speck

how marvelous to be so tiny and so free 

it’s wonderful just to be alive breathing


sunshine on sunshine 

it builds up like snow 

the light grows deeper and brighter 

as the day goes on 

to live in the big valley is to know light 

moving across this flat land 

i try to keep my westward travels in the morning 

and save the east for the evening 

always keeping the sun at my back 

feet upon the valley 

eyes upon the sky
