on any given day

I am all too seen

in the play

of my familiar world

walking

up against the wind

singing

over sacred silence

and standing

heavy on my shadow

looking

for my place

I watch myself

wandering

through the labyrinth of the great human riddle

wondering

about the infinite and eternal mystery

sensing myself

small like sand

diaphanous like sea

and when I find that

I no longer can see myself

and when I simply see

I forget

that I was looking

and know

that I am

finding

my place to be
