To look for wonder

This week
By the sea
In community
Has reminded me
Of simplicity

Reminds me how to pay attention,
How to move the paint brush,
Sing a song,
Lie starfished floating.
How to sit and gaze as gulls kite high,
As terns skim waves,
rabbits dart,
Kittens chase,
Blackberries ripen in the soft rain.

I remember that
When I slow down,
There are miracles
To be found in marmalade,
And circles,
In thistles,
Sea kale,
In the pinking leaves of early autumn,
In the gold finches’ chattering.

When I stop and stare
I find there are miracles everywhere.
