EVERY TIME I SEE THIS HAPPEN


By Roland E. Williams

 

Does your heart leap as mine does?

When I gaze upon my elephants?

And upon my castles by the sea?

And all the precious treasures I find

In the finest of those fine lines

In those fluffy balls of cotton

In the smile upon my face

Every time I see this happen…

 

Does your mind marvel as mine does?

When I look in awe at the green rainbows

That unveil themselves in all these shades

And in all these forms and sizes

Bewilderment envelopes me

As those solid greens of evergreen

Leave me open-mouthed

Every time I see this happen…

 

Does your soul feel shallow as mine does?

When I stand at this smallest of edges

And feel the way of the atom

And sense the puniness of my being

Engulfed by rushes of air flowing

Making way through my empty pettiness

While the waves of the vastness

Stir my each and every cell

Every time I see this happen…
