Look Around In Wonder — David Griswold

Post any poetry here. It's just too hard to define "inspired" in this context, so we will settle for that which inspires.

Look Around In Wonder — by David Griswold

Look around, look around,
Look around in wonder,
Trace the thunderous cloud above
That feeds the river under.
Look above and look below
And look at last within,
You'll see a river running there
And when you do, jump in.

See the seedling sprouting up,
See the tree that bends,
Keep on seeing through the years
How nothing ever ends.
Watch the hawk and watch the cat
And watch the prey they stalk,
Watch the infant reaching out
That slowly learns to walk.

Watch the curling fern unfurl
And watch it curl again,
See the sunlight through the mist
That hangs above the fen.
Watch the moon peek through the leaves,
And see the stars take shape,
Watch the earth go round and round
A sun it can't escape.

Watch your hands and watch your feet
And watch your changing face,
See it in a river's glass
That's never in one place.
Watch the mountains slowly rise
And sink down toward the sea,
Watch your chest both rise and fall
In perfect harmony.

Look around, look around,
Look around in wonder,
Trace the thunderous cloud above
That feeds the river under.
Look above and look below
And look at last within,
You'll see a river running there
And when you do, jump in.
