The Act Of Wonder - Poem by RIC BASTASA

this morning he does not know
where to start
the morning is a big red sunflower
unfolding and bending
to the sun

and he does not know still what to do
about it
what he does not know is that
when he
opens the door and walks towards the big yellow sunflower

and looks at it so amazed that he forgets
about what next to do with his life
or the life of others who depend on him

he already does everything that
is right and possible
