Sacred Wonder in Our Eyes

Sacred Wonder

Of course there are times

When I am lost—

Hours or even days spent gazing

Spellbound in whimsy by empty space—

Light shimmering on the lake,

Counting rolling waves upon the shore,

Watching lightening as it boldly strikes….


Times when I walk alone upon some path

Not knowing which way to turn,

Perhaps melancholy deep in forest,

Out upon some field in burning sun,

Jumping in puddles when it rains,

Trudging through heavy snow and wind.

And part of me is lost; and part of me is wild.


Last night I danced in reverie

Beneath that big old Moon….

Whether I danced naked or had

Clothes upon my back is my secret.

No, you may not ask.

Go dance your own dance—

Do not ever judge my own.


There is a world of dreams within,

Fantasies that come and go

As sparrows fly inside large barn

Before they find the door and soar

Somewhere among white clouds—

Precisely where I will never know.

And if I could, never would I bring them back.


If you find me barefoot, splashing in the brook—

Do not ask to dry my feet

Nor come back to drink your tea.

Do not say a word. Just stay with me.

Try to understand the fire inside my belly.

Imagine all the pain within my broken heart.

Find me. But do not bring me back.


Do you yearn to know this part of me?

If not, then never assume I am ready

To lose my soul for your reality.

Leave me lost in mystery of my own.

Though I may be alone,

I fear someone may take away my magic.

Only offer me a hand to hold.


Perhaps I will take you for wild ride—

I own the sky and ocean blue. And so do you.

I skip from mountain top to deep of valley floor.

Spread your wings and fly with me.

Whatever time we spend will not be wasted…

For time does not exist when we blaze

With wonder, sacred wonder burning in our eyes.
