A metaphysical meditation
Every life is enormous to itself,
no matter how small.
To the beetle that rolls dung
into a little ball, his toil is equal
to the building of a cathedral.
To the martin,
his swoops in the sky
are perfect art, inspired
by the mystery of the stars.
The coyote that runs down a rabbit
thinks he is the prince of the plains.
He does not wonder
if there is anything better.
A voice cries out across
the universe: Let me live!
