Take a look at that sky and the sun shining tirelessly with bold affection

Hear the love song of both the hundreds of birds there every day at this time

And all the cars sharing their barbaric yawp with you

The warm tug of the Mother’s gravity hugs you tight to her, never content to release you

This life gives you your heart and sets it beating, quickens it with diverse excitements and slows it with the calm songs of evening

Love this moment, This real moment

And notice, as you do, it has already loved you in return

All of this, all of you
