a never to be repeated phenomenon

there are moments
often in the middle of an ordinary day
when the overwhelmingness of life,
of existence itself,
comes upon me
and i feel my breath gently
and my skin softly
and the awareness
of being here
as life itself
as a never to be repeated phenomenon
stops me…
and i simply sit
in silent wonder

each manifestation of life
is so uniquely beautiful
every flower
snowflake
butterfly
human

this simple truth
could be enough to
create heaven on earth
if only we could remember…

i remembered.
