I ever live in wonder at the complexity of the real
Ever in wonder at the unfoldment I sense and feel.

No matter what events befall me

I know they will expand richly

Into a glimmering manifold of coherent forces

Or a space manifesting multiple sources

Of order and of symmetry combining

Giving justice to some adventurer’s refining.

Until I fall back from the space into which I stared

Replete with wonder, from ugliness spared,

Able to affirm, able to say yes

With my love of creation diminished none the less.
