night to fall, dawn to break,

winds to blow, rain to come,

clouds to scoot across the sky,

birds to take flight,

stillness falls:

surface to ripple from beneath –

eye to see, ear to hear,

first breath, last sigh,

path to open, door to close,

mind to open, heart to break:

stone to roll, clouds to part,

fear to flee, love to stay.

    From end to beginning
    From down to up
    And all between
    We fill our cup
    From word to words
    Of flesh that’s naught
    Small bits to lines
    Precious the thought.

    This just came to me after reading your post as I sat in the grocery store parking lot.
