Today I Stopped by Stephanie Conn

Today I stopped to watch the dewdrop
sag perilously on a blade of grass
and plunged into the crashing waves
of a vast ocean.

Today I stopped to find the sun in a daisy
and felt the warmth and the bee's desire
as I rode on it's tiny back.

Today I stopped to hear the trickle of a stream;
cleansed my fingers in the cooling flow
and became the rain.
