"An Honor to Be Alive" Meditation by Patrick Murfin
This happenstance assemblage of atoms,
this collection of random stardust
echoing an explosive moment of creation,
this unlikely bag of seawater, carbon, and stone,
oddly and inexplicably ambulatory,
miraculously sees and recognizes you,
the very you seeing and recognizing.
It is an honor to be alive.
From We Build Temples in the Heart: Side by Side We Gather, by Patrick Murfin.
