Almost Benediction - Poem by Edward Nelson

There's so much happening
All around you
If you stop it
Well, you won't:

Nature takes a new step
A few steps for every one-step:
Technology takes... (they blend, creating pulsing percussion)

It's almost benediction
Sitting here early morningtide
Sipping on something
Whispering 'Sh' into the air

Nature's all beside you (a chorus choirs a chorus of still)
Above you and beyond us all (a leaf blows notes)
It's almost: a benediction...
