In moments of introspection

I see myself from afar

Miniscule, insignificant

Another head in the crowd

A vanishing footprint in the sand

My life just a moment in eons unending

At those times I wonder

Might I slip into the blue

Lost and barely noticed?

Then a breeze caresses my cheek

The ripples on the sea wink at me

Leaves clap their hands in glee

And a thrill surges within

I live, a miracle of creation

With potential unimagined

A dreamer sparked by the Infinite

Branded by love and promise

I am
