Note of Gratitude

by Rebecca Andre

To any 4th dimensional being(s) and/or All Thing
A brief note of gratitude

That thing hovering above and around all things on this spinning rock
[the sky]
My eyes see wonderful lovely shades of what we’ve labeled BLUE
The muscles in my cheek transition my features into a smile
And my insides have a gladness
That it is blue
And my little face orbs are able to see that it is.

That thing covering the firmness beneath my dual walking appendages
[the green grass]
Alive with transitioning wind and thing induced movement
My feet feel a heated crinkly lushness of the GREEN
And my insides have more warmGladhappy
That the covering is steady
And my wobbly body impermanence can feel that it is.

That thing that rushes flows spouts and carves with meticulously directed abandon
[the waters]
Bolds and calms leaps beads dives flats shimmers depths shallows
This shell is scoured and massaged with light touches and warmed gravityfalls
And my insides are cleanGladsoothed
That the cool turbulence is accepting
And my skin crisp parchment is assuaged yet again.

That thing that undulates back and forth in the dark crusts of the top
That thing that deftly scrambles the reaching stretching vegetation
That thing that leaps fearlessly and floats to the crest of blues and whites
That thing that smooths through bolds and calms narrow-mindedly
[the animals]
So much un(pre)determined spontaneous MOVEMENT and aliveness
These seeing spheres crinklelaugh at the absurdities and gone in a flashes
These headsnailsdrums of vibrating waves of sound captured and interpreted (!)
Sink into the floater’s beakprose, the scrambled dash scratches, the din of all.
And my insides GLOWgladness with this resonance
That the small/large float squirm dashers are abound
And my inwardsmile grows at the complexity

That thing that holds the mirror up to all in knowing
That thing that tries its best to create comprehension from one box to another
That thing building repairing spreading forgetting finding LOVE
[us people]
Scrambles of need and blundering toward the next ridge and awe at the reflection
of the universe and ourselves.
Knowledge used for connection and love and love and love shared
And my insides ache warmth and gladness
that love sees itself in us and surrounds everything
And my outwardsmile and inwardsmile is all for you and it all.

I like this. Refreshingly different.
