I Whisper

I am paying close attention
to the living reality
surrounding me outdoors.

I am focused intently,
drawn into the science,
pulled into the mystery;

I am amazed by the intricacies of nature,
fascinated by the complex details,
astounded by how it all works.

For each miracle I witness,
for each poem I write,
for each photograph I capture,

I whisper 
into the air:
"Thank you God!"

After the gathering
of memories, words, and images,
it is always the gratitude that remains.
