Is this happy happening an occasion
to savor, relish, maybe even pray,
and wonder how life is dying to feed us?
And is this dying life's way
to birth itself anew in us?
Are these plants and animals,
in their brief being and going,
episodes, stunned and stunning,
in the Story of All,
teller to teller, listener to listener,
bidding us to get it, make it make sense?
